Email moderator whenever there's a new post - stripemirror - 2017-03-29

Our Forum moderator is very busy and would like any new posts to our forum to be emailed to him.

We had a plugin which did this until 1.8, when it stopped working.
It was called "new member screening" by Ad Bakker
The functionality was this:
"Screen new users by requiring approval of their first post and send appropriate messages to moderators."
I believe it sent an email to our moderator every time a user posted something so he didn't have to log in to MyBB, but could check his email and then log in if needed.   

Is this functionality available in myBB or is a plugin needed?

Is there a replacement or update for the "new member screening" plugin that anyone knows about, that does the same thing?

I would be grateful for any information on this, thanks!

Easiest option would be to have him subscribe to the forums that he is interested in receiving notifications from.

Thanks for the suggestion but he is the moderator and needs to approve posts before they are posted. Therefore he would need to receive notification of a post prior to posting, ie prior to him getting notice of new posts.  So unfortunately that won't work.

He needs to be notified every time anyone submits a post to the forum, so he can approve the post.
