I'm trying to figure out a way to allow anonymous users to subscribe to my blog and receive email updates whenever I publish new content.

I've tried a couple of solutions, but none of them seem to work the way I would like them to. This page (http://drupal.org/node/983184) says that I should be able to use Simplenews to do it, but I can't figure out how.

That module seems to be based around creating a Newsletter content node and which gets sent to the subscribers. However, what I want to do is post a new Article and have the system automatically send an email to all my subscribers containing something like a Teaser.

At the least, I'd like to send a simple email with the Content Title and a link to the node.

How do I configure Simplenews to work like this?
