Looking for advice for Wordpress subscriptions

This seems like the most appropriate forum for this...

I have a client who owns a chain of clubs around the world, and wants to have a separate Wordpress site for each location (it can be WordpressMU). Each site will have a subscription box where non-registered users can signup to receive daily-digest updates from that site. So far, the subscribe2 plugin could be used for that.

The tricky part is he wants visitors to be able to choose from all of the locations when signing up for updates. So for example, let's say a visitor on the Las Vegas site wants to get updates, but since he travels Miami quite a bit, he wants to get updates for the Miami location, too... he'll be able to choose to receive updates from those two blogs. The details of implementation are still fairly open, but I'm imagining maybe a "locations" button that opens a little box with checkmarks for all the locations. Something like that, but the important thing is the functionality.

Does anyone know of any scripts that will do anything like this, or maybe have any ideas or recommendations?

    Hi,
    I've not used that plugin, but having just had a quick look at the FAQs, could you not put each of the sites as a separate category, and then subscribers can select which categories they want to subscribe to.

    Don't know if this will work but might be worth investigating
    Signature

    Isn't it possible to do this from a aweber or getresponse account, to choose to subscribe to several lists at the time.
