    Im looking for a daily email update for my posts to subscibers and have read a few posts here so maybe someone can shed some light on this service. I would like to user to be able to subscribe from a form on my site and dont want them getting any spam/advertising unless controled by me.
    Do any feed readers do this well?
    What are people experainces with bloglet?
    The plug-in's seem to be post only, is there a daily full featured one? ( by full featured I mean well written/secure).

    thanks

    People could just subscribe to your RSS feed and get the latest posts automatically. If they are inclined to subscribe, RSS seems to be a better option and to top it all, it's all already supported.

    Thanks but you maybe didn't understand the question, what im looking for is a daily update (not single posts), a form they can subscribe to on my site (like bloglet). The service has to be reliable and free of any crap( spamm, ads). A plug in would be great but I havent found any for daily updates.

    Feedburner has now parternered with somebody called Feedblitz (or something) that send daily emails to subscribers - Just what you want. But I haven't tested it - would be nice to know if anybody has started using Feedblitz and their opinions.

    Thanks This seems like a decent service as Ive read bloglet is unreliable, I will try it out and hopefully it is add free, though im sure ill have to pay for it eventually.

    If you want to have more control over how your subscriptions are handled and who your subscribers are, I recommend this plugin:

    Ok I got the plugin functional but can not for the life of me work out how to put it in the sidebar. I want the form to show up there on my home page.

    I put <!--subscribe2--> in the sidebar.php file just below the search.

    I am not proficient and need a little help.

    I use Feedblitz for what you just said on my blog.

    Basically it allows you users to signup for your feed via email.

    You (the subscriber) get an update once a day with a list of posts (if any).
