No more email newsletters for me

Dec - 22 - 2005

RSS Compendium lists the greatest tools! I have been waiting for some of the mailing lists I subscribe to to offer RSS feeds instead – since I read news on Bloglines much more than I read those newsletters 9I have about 300 unread in my mailbox) – now I don’t have to wait any longer. MailFeed.org makes it so that you can create an RSS feed out of a newsletter subscription.

Ever had to subscribe to an email newsletter or mailing list because no feed was available? Ever needed to quickly create a multi-author RSS feed? This service gives you an email address that can be read by an RSS 2.0 aggregator, and you don’t even have to register.

E.g., send mail to

despoilment@mailfeed.org

and read it via

http://mailfeed.org/rss2/despoilment

All feeds are open to the public, which means it’s very easy to set up new addresses and even share them among a group of people (technically you don’t even have to visit this site to set up a new feed).

I’m off to figure out how to make this work for me!

Update: The first newsletter I tried to subscribe to requires that I confirm my email address before they’ll send me the newsletter – Hmmm – I have submitted a note to the MailFeed people and will keep you posted on their response.

Update 2: Martin Dittus from MailFeed replied to my message promptly! Turns out that the feed I set up actually caught the confirmation email and I was able to active my subscription/feed that way!

Update 3: Okay so the feed works – but bloglines won’t read it and I’m not sure why.
