Hi Jerry, 

So we have had several specific requests from users to provide an email notifications. We have also had a lot of feedback that users find OpenDNSSEC hard to configure, very had to monitor and they don't like the XML/script combination. These developments are an attempt to address some of those user concerns. 

The details of HOW we offer the ability to do email notification is obviously up for discussion but we need to be mindful that users want something simple for them (not necessarily simple for us) :-)

What is your specific technical objection to implementing email?
