Any solutions to Bloglet problems?

If you look down the right-side navigation of this site, you'll notice a form and link to Bloglet. The service (when it works) sends e-mails nightly to a list of subscribers. Those e-mails contain the headlines and text from my entries for the day.

The problem is that it's very unreliable (though I would pay a few bucks for it if it worked right), and anybody who's on my list, probably hasn't received an update for a couple weeks or more.

I'm obviously not the only one with this problem. The site is up and down like a kid on a trampoline (sorry, bad analogy), and I was wondering if anybody out there has a better solution? The e-mail features in Movable Type are less than stellar, that's for sure, and I don't know if they'll get fixed or not.

Does anybody else have their own Bloglet-like system? Need a beta tester? ;-)
