RSS Mailer emails the contents of RSS feeds to mailing list users

RSS Mailer emails the contents of RSS feeds to mailing list users. You can manage your users and RSS feeds through a web interface and send a selected number of items from your RSS feeds (individually or all together) to the email addresses on your mail list. Users can subscribe/unsubscribe themselves through forms, or the administrator can subscribe/unsubscribe them through the web interface. You probably won't need Bloglet anymore.

It's worth mentioning that the new version of Mozilla Thunderbird has RSS built in, for that easy RSS-as-email look.

But this looks quite useful. Does anyone have any experience of it up and running on a public site? I get a fair number of pageviews a day (in the hundreds of thousands), and wouldn't want to kill my server by sending out thousands of emails every morning.

Wow. I've been looking to do something like this on my site for ages. I've had this other, more complicated way saved in my bookmarks for the last couple months, if anyone is interested.

Haha, busted. No, really. Hoder posts great stuff and I found this useful, so couldn't give a monkey if this is a self-link - which it isn't, even if the Hoder did the guy out. It could even be special thanks for posting it to MetaFilter.

Even so, a little explanation would be nice. Still, it's a great link. Can't believe that more people aren't posting their gratitude.
