wordpress subscription on my site

Hi.

I have a blog at wordpress.com. I have moved on my own hosting, installing wordpress and some plugins.

On wordpress.com there is a widget that allows visitors to subscribe to the blog, so when I add a new post all subscribers receives an html e-mail with the post. Is this possible to have this functionality on my own hosted wordpress? I tried some free plugins without success.

Thank you.

Because if you could do that, anyone could "subscribe" a list of email accounts to a new WordPress instance and then use the wordpress.com infrastructure to spam them by publishing a new post.  So there isn't import/export mechanism in Jetpack to the best of my knowledge.

Try contacting their support...I could be wrong.

Finally I'm using Jetpack subscription, which is the plugin more similar to the subscription functionality on Wordpress.com.

However I don't see how can I manage the subscribed users, for example for adding all the users I had previously subscribed (I have their e-mail addresses). Is this possible?

No, that's not possible with Jetpack.  It's a spam control measure.

I don't understand. Why I can export/import subscribed users from my old site to my new site?

That's ok, seems logical. Thank you.
