How can people get notified when I post new content?

Hi - this is probably really basic, so apologies in advance for being dim. A developer has created a really nifty news/blog site for us  www.knightfrank.com/globalbriefing  but  I can't figure out how to provide a notification option that people can click on to sign up to get an email whenever new content is posted.

It's probably right in front of me, but I can't see the equivalent to Word Press's "Follow" option anywhere. I'd rather have an email-based system than RSS.

Any help greatly appreciated

You can use "newsletter" widget to provide email based subscription.

there is a lot to desire for that widget, where is the double opt-in, why do I unsubscribe if I fill in the same email twice? No sir, that widget is not doing the trick for me.

Thanks very much. I've had the same problems and I also get an error message when I try to change the name of the widget to something more sensible. Seems a glaring omission.
