Same here, with the PostgreSQL database as well. Basically I added a  
bunch of old posts directly to the database (not through Typo) and  
despite having the exact same data as all the other items in the  
contents table, they are also generating RSS feed entries sans email.

Where is the difference here? From the database perspective, I can't tell.
