Dear experts,

I am looking for the best way to notify my users of new blog posts by entering an email in a form. I don´t need them to subcribe to the site, I Just need them to enter their email address to get notify of new blog posts.

thanks in advance,

Winter

Correction: I think 'esskayb2d' meant to use mailchimp (http://drupal.org/project/mailchimp). Used in conjunction with webform (http://drupal.org/project/webform), you can add email fields to a form that will subscribe the user to a mailing list.

This won't solve your problem, though. Adding users to a mailing list won't actually notify them when a new node is created.

I would recommend looking at either the Subscriptions (http://drupal.org/project/subscriptions) or Notifications (http://drupal.org/project/notifications) module. The former has a 7.x stable release, while the latter is still in alpha.

Subscriptions should allow you to configure notifications based on the creation of new content. The subscription component is exposed through the user profile (tabs).

yes, mailchimp is used as a mass mail platform, configuring it to send an email once a blog is updated may take a few steps, or may have to be done seperately, but it works very effeciently.
