I like this suggestion. However after looking at what is available in the templates, I do not see that they give access by default to the templates (from which the notification e-mails are built). You can see the full variable list for modifying here:

https://wiki.phpbb.com/Viewforum_Template_Variables

From that, I can construct the e-mail for any notification to look how people view best.

I can update it to include the Author and Subject.

Some forums do that; it's handy if you want to read the post right away but don't have time to reply at the moment, or if you want to save the notification for future reference and want more of a reminder that just the subject.
I second that one big time.

Could you parse the return contents from the URL U_LAST_POST ?

Don't know why I didn't think of this before, but it would be nice to be able to subscribe to email notification of any new post in the forum, so I don't have to reload the "View active topics" page a dozen times a day. :)
