This has been brought up a couple times before.. Our mailing list DB and our WWW user DB are in no way synced or able to talk to eachother making it technically prohibitive to do this.. I think it would be cool to do too, but how things are right now, it just won't work.. sorry :( One thing we could add to teh CMS would be a 'notify me when new articles are posted' checkbox on the user signup page that would correspond to a flag in the user record.. when a new article is approved, mailto if user.notifyme = yes pseudo code gets run.. .djc.
