Would like to be able to send the blog post in an email mail to my subscribers, this would be great if it can be achieved through a plugin.
There are many options. Subscribe2 is very popular, although I've never been a fan. http://subscribe2.wordpress.com/
MailChimp and FeedBurner both offer RSS to Email delivery which can be used for this as well.
JetPack includes a subscribe to new posts function as well: http://jetpack.me/2011/11/29/how-to-use-email-subscriptions-in-jetpack-1-2/
Do you want to send an email to subscribers whenever a new Blog post is published? If this, you can use Subscribe2 plugin.
