Auto Subscribe users to New Content & new comments to their own Posts.

Notify module is a powerful way to subscribe users to periodic emails which include all new or revised content and/or comments much like the daily news letters sent by some websites. Even if this feature is not configured for normal site users, it can be a useful feature for an administrator of a site to monitor new content submissions and comment posts.

Problem
Users have to enable this from the "my account" page and many novoice users dont know how to do this or are not aware of this feature, which reduces the return visits to site.

How-To: 

Auto Enable "Contact Form"

Problem in 4.7

In Version 5 you can Auto Enable from your Admin section.

How-To: 

Send emails to all users ( Mass mail )

I believe that e-mails are very powerful way to attract visitors to the site and to keep visitors informed about the site content.

How-To: 

Auto subscribe new users to Newsletters

Simplenews is a powerful yet simple newsletter module which allows both anonymous as well as registered users to subscribe to different newsletters.

Problem
Users have to subscribe to the newsletters and many novoice users
dont know how to subscribe. As a result for small sites the newsletter subscription is very low.

There is a need to auto subscribe users to Newsletters & later they can choose to unsubscribe.

Solution
SimpleNews module needs to be hacked either via

Cron

How-To: 

Post nodes, comments, taxonomy, teasers & Blogs via E-mail.
