What do you exactly mean by "subscription email"?
Reading all above I would assume that you don't use RT Dashboards, but
thats exactly what you want:
* you can display them within the RT Webinterface
* you can send them as e-mail
Here is the documentation:
While the documentation is for RT 4.2, dashboards are also available in
RT 4.0 without the DashboardInMenu function.
