What you are both suggesting makes sense, but correct me if I'm wrong, it 
duplicates email functionality.  Our front ends are programmed in two 
different languages (forgot to mention that), so if I keep the active 
emails in the front end web code, I have to write the code twice, plus I 
have to code backend functionality to allow passive emails to go out (an 
example of a passive email: someone posts a reply to a thread, and I want 
to alert all of the users who are subscribed to that thread that there's a 
new message - too much to put in the code I would think, as there could be 
1000's of subscribers).
