Email feature with .Net Blogs

I am currently looking for an asp.net blog solution (paid or open source) that will email subscribers when a new post has been published. Having the ability to edit this email before it's sent is also preferred.

I have looked at a lot of solutions, but can't find much information on emailing features. Are there any asp.net solutions out there that can do this?

Have you considered WordPress?

http://www.asp.net/ also has some blogging sites you can download for free, though I don't have any experience with any of them.

Just add an RSS feed to your website. Here are some links to RSS programs:

If they subscribe to your feed they will be notified of updates.

Unfortunately, we can't use Wordpress because it's not ASP.Net (our IT won't support anything else) and we already plan on using RSS, but we want to email all the subscribers as well.

Also, I checked out www.asp.net, and while it has a good selection of blog software, there are limited descriptions and it shows more than just asp.net solutions.

If they are subscribed to the RSS they will get an e-mail if they choose to get one..

Yeah...www.asp.net is just all Windows stuff, not necessarily .Net - but it's easy to download & try them to see if they do what you want.  Also, since your IT dept. won't support anything other than .Net I assume that's because they're familiar with the .Net programming languages, and if they know C# of VB.Net adding an e-mail notification to one of these open-source blog engines should be fairly trivial.
