I have a group of uses that are used to having messages "Pushed" to them (using Listserves).  We are tying to break them of that habit, but in order to be members to check the forum, they need to be sent reminders that additions have been posted to the forum, even for topics they may not have ever viewed or posted.

I know that this will be extremely annoying for members that don't want to fill their mailboxs, but until we get them used to going into the forum regularly, this is the only way we can remind them to check in.

So is there a way for now topics to automatically send an email to all forum members of the new topic.

We currently only have a small group of members (~25), so hopefully it won't be too taxing on the server.

Can someone give me ideas of what I would have to do to make something like this work?

Members would need to use this Member Control Panel to subscribe themselves to forums in order to receive email notifications.

To comply with anti spam laws you would not be able to subscribe members for them as they would need to opt themselves in to the subscription.
