to change the email icon Increase/Decrease the 130 width value for a wider text area Replace http://feedburner.google.com/fb/a/mailverify?uri=helplogger with your Feedburner Email Feed link.You can get it by visiting your feedburner account then navigate to Publicize and then to Email Subscriptions.Replace helplogger with your feed title. It appears at the end of your feed link.In my case it is http://feedburner.google.com/fb/a/mailverify?uri= helplogger

your blog. Enjoy!
