The newsletter will send out an email to each user with the Receives Newsletter role with a list of the movies and tv shows/episodes that have been added recently.
The newsletter will never show duplicates, so once it's been sent out then it will only show new content in the next email.
By default this is scheduled to run every Friday at 12GMT.

When testing the newsletter, Ombi will grab the latest 10 movies and 10 shows that Ombi has found and send it to all users with the Admin permission.
If the users with the Admin permission do not have email addresses associated with their account then they will (of course) not receive an email.

Update Database

This is very important.
If you do not update the database then the first run of the newsletter will go through EVERY movie and show/episodes in your Plex/Emby library and compose an email.
This can be very time consuming if you have large libraries. We strongly recommend updating the database before enabling the newsletter.
