The SendFeed plugin allows you to send the latest post(s) from your RSS feed
to an external Mailing List Manager in both text and html formats. It is
capable of sending messages out immediately, at predefined intervals such as
daily/weekly/monthly or manually.
The text and HTML templates are completely customisable on a per feed basis
so you can tailor the emails to suit the list or feed you are using.
Potential uses include:
* Automatically kick off formatted emails to mailing list managers on blog feed update.
* Email notifications to one or more people on feed updates.
* Track your favourite blog feeds by email.
* HTML + Text Emails
* Ability to include custom mail header fields
* Flexible send schedule including fifteen minute, daily, weekly, monthly or manual sending

BETA SOFTWARE WARNING
Please be aware as you use this software that it is still considered to be
BETA SOFTWARE and as such may function in unexpected ways. Of course, we
do try our best to make sure it is as stable as possible and try to address
problems as quickly as possible when they come up, but just be aware that
there may still be bugs.
In the event that you DO experience any problems with this software, we would
like to hear about it and will do our best to fix the problem. You can let us
know in the comments associated with the post of the latest SendFeed release.
Upload the /sendfeed/ folder and files to your WordPress plugins folder,
located in your WordPress install under /wp-content/plugins/
Browse in the WordPress admin interface to the plugin activation page and
activate the SendFeed plugin.
The plugin should now be installed and activated. The first time you visit
management page, the appropriate tables will be created in the database
You may create new contact forms by using the controls found on the
Settings > SendFeed page.
The email scheduling of SendFeed will function best on high traffic sites.
If your site does not receive very much traffic, you may want to set up a
cron script to load the wp-cron.php page from your site at regular
intervals. Some information on doing this can be found here:
Cron example running every 15 minutes:
*/15 * * * * /usr/bin/php -f /path/to/your/site/wp-cron.php
(You will want to test this on the commandline of your server to ensure it
is working as expected) (You may also need to use /usr/bin/php-cgi instead,
depending on your server configuration)
Alternative: Use a third party service like this one…
