I believe you could create the sign in feed button with an action that will record the email in the database. You will have a job that will be fired after a new post/item is created. This job will search for new itens and the related people that will want to receive that notification.
I believe what you are suggesting is emailing that something got changed. But i want to use ATOM Feed technology for it so that he can check that something got updated using some ATOM Feed client.

Now my understanding is a bit clear but i have one question.
When a url is given to client for subscribing to Atom Feed then we create a atomfeed xml on server and keep updating it with change in subscription
when a request from ATOM FEED client comes to that URL then we dynamically create atom xml and return.
PLease clarify if someone has any experience with RSS/Atom feed.

The feed can be static (an XML file that gets periodically updated) or dynamic (created on demand when it is requested) - both approaches are possible. Which ones makes sense fo you depends on your circumstances (like how personalized the feeds are).
