  1. I’m looking for a WordPress plug in to allow me to import email addresses that I have into my new ProPhoto3 WordPress Blog template. I want to be able to set my new blog up so as to inform all who have subscribed each time I post through email, not an RSS feed which many folks don’t understand.

    Will I be able to export captured email addresses of additional folks who subscribe?

    Will this plug in do this?
