Shelly is wondering if anyone out there is familar with a tool other than Bloglet (which we both have found is fine when it works, but it only seems to work most of the time) that will send an RSS feed to an email account. I'm curious too - any help? Beuller?
UPDATE: As recommended by John in the comments below, I tried out both Blogarithm and Bot a Blog, and both sent me an email to let me know the blog I was monitoring had been updated. Neither included the post, as Bloglet does, but they included a link to the blog, so I could easily go see what had been updated. Not a perfect solution, but still better than no notice at all. I'll continue to monitor for a few days to see how reliable they appear to be.
It occurs to me that if you weren't trying to allow folks to sign up on their own, for instance if you just wanted the updates to automatically go to a listserv, you could also use WatchThatPage to do this. You'd just have to set up a separate account with them to send email to your listserv address...
