Weblog-to-email plug-in?

A friend asked me to recommend a good third-party plug-in for automatically turning weblog posts into mailing-list messages. I’ve got the Bloglet service plugged into this site but I subscribed myself when I signed up and haven’t gotten a post in months, so I don’t know if that’s just me or if it’s a flaky service for everyone, in which case I myself need to replace it.
It would be nice if MT had something better than the manually operated memorable-posts mailing list. It’s sitting right there. How hard is it to wire up the sub list to an autopost feature? Lazyweb?
Actually, I bet this’ll be part of the MT Pro, which would be good enough for me. In the meantime, though, can anyone recommend any alternatives. How hard is it to massage RSS into email anyway?

    UserLand’s Manila has it. Radio has a plug-in for mail from RSS.

    Blagg, a plugin for Blosxom, has this capability via a plug-in, but I don’t know how well it works, or how easily. It looks to require a cron job, too.

    Sometimes I think faster than I type and it leaves me with redundant sentences that make me bemoan the lack of ability to edit a comment.

    I don’t know if Bloglet is flaky for everyone, but it’s flaky for me too at least. Subscrribed myself, have gotten nothing.

    Me too. I’m desparately looking for some kind of script that functions like Bloglet, but on my own server.
