Hi,

I would like to subscribe with each message for each post, instead of digest
mode. How can I do it? I didn't find the appropriate option in my account.
The only related option I found is the "disabling digest mode subscription",
but it doesn't tell if each individual message will be sent to subscriber.

Thanks for your help.
Michael.
