    An oldie but a goodie.

    If XF could support accepting new posts (and issuing emails) via a listserv type interface; this would be amazing. Half my users love their email and would love to be able to receive new posts (and post) by email.

    This wild be huge for XF as a platform; with the demise of mail2forum; there are scant few options out there right now.

    I'd be more than happy to help sponsor and help pay for such an add-on.

    I am currently searching for a paid developer to build this functionality. Please reply to this thread or PM me if interested.

    In my case, I wish to grant members the option to receive email copies of posts filtered either by their News Feed, or Watched Threads or Watched Forums. For me, simply being able to distribute email copies of posts to users is more than half the battle, as many will return to the forum to reply. However, there are some users who wish to reply via email, so providing this additional capability would be fantastic.

    This is a high priority for me. Please respond. Thanks.

    I just stumbled upon an old one of @Jeremy 's posts that will allow me to achieve most of the functionality that I desire. From what I understand, this will allow Watched Threads to continue to produce alerts and email notifications, even if the watched thread remains unread by the watching member. Thanks @Jeremy.

    I know others have been looking for similar functionality as I've seen quite a few other similar requests by other members here. Hence, i thought I would share what I found in hopes it helps others.
