Email Subscriptions In Bloglines

Tonight we rolled out a new Bloglines feature called email subscriptions. Basically, an email subscription is like a normal subscription, except that each one comes with a unique Bloglines email address associated with it. The email address is not easily guessable (hard to spam). Whenever an email is received for one of these email addresses, it appears just like a normal blog entry. We support HTML email and even embedded images. When an email subscription is deleted (ie. the user unsubscribes), the associated email address disappears.
Email subscriptions are great for announce-only or broadcast mailing lists that don’t provide RSS feeds. They are also useful as temporary email addresses.
