Now, ContextProject fully supports email notification.

Emails will be sent for below cases:

1) When user posts new comment on one blog post, ENS will send email to the post author.

2) When user adds new comment to the existing comment, ENS will send email to the author of that comment and also BCC the post author.

E.g.
