That's exactly my wish list for improvement to email in GL. I'd also 
add a database list/GUI screen where the admin can see all the email 
that went out. (Since the emails are queued somewhere, they probably 
are already in the database anyway.)

To me, this functionality is more important than getting alerts when 
a story is written. Pull tech like RSS is better for that than push 
tech like email.
