I want to be able to notify users when I update my website. What is the easiest way to do this?

Thanks

Where are you hosted? Many hosts provide a mailing list service. Otherwise you can install a script which will do the same job.

I use Winsave right now. What scripts have you seen on the net that will notify users when your site has changes? I have seen some services that will do this, but no scripts yet.
Thanks for the reply!

Do you want an email to be sent automatically every time you make a change to your website, or do you want to compose an email at your leisure when changes are made?

My bad then, if you use a traditional method of editing your pages (FTP), then you won't find a script which does this. However I would think there would be online services which would do this (not necessarily for free): visit your site every x days/hours and email changes to a list of people.

shouldn't it be possible to run something with cron to check what files have been modified?
