I'm setting up a forum for my brother-in-law who sends out a regular email for his mission work in Cambodia. I've created a read-only forum where he can post his newsletter, and am wondering if the functionality is there (or if it would be difficult to add) for all posts in this forum to be auto-mailed to everyone on his recipient list. Is this available?

No, that functionality doesnt' exist as far as I know. I think the best you could do is have his users 'Watch' a specific thread, which will notify them of updates by email. Or try out the RSS feed, you might be able to get it working that way.

When I post fp:mddubs in a topic, I'm leaving my footprint there so I can track it once I get into coding/supporting. (Yes I stole this off Mek 🙂, who stole this off Ederon 🙂 )

Thanks Dubs. I didn't think the functionality was there. I'll look at the RSS feed as you suggest, and maybe see if there is some other way I can modify the site to make this work. I'm just not terribly skilled at working with other people's code, but if I can wrap my mind around what the code is doing, I might be able to make this work.
