Out of Stock Customer Emails

Is there a way for a customer to put in their e-mails for products which are out of stock, and be automatically e-mailed when that stock is back and available?  Something like an input form or something - but I didn’t know if I had to create a new table in my database, or whatever.

The trouble is that I’m using alot of configurable products, so I’d like the email signup available when associated simple products (shirt sizes) are back in stock.  Can this be done?

Thanks.

This is a standard feature of Magento. It requires the customer to register but they will be automatically informed when the product is back in stock. It works for simple products I haven’t tried it for configurable products.

Look at the options under System - Configuration - Catalog/Catalog - Product Alerts.
