RSSFWD: RSS to E-mail

RSSFWD: RSS to E-mail

To begin, I’d like to ask you a question: do you have any Web sites you like to visit on a regular basis, but you don’t always get to? You know, maybe you don’t have enough time or perhaps it’s just too inconvenient. If that’s the case, how would you like to receive RSS feeds from those sites right in your e-mail? That would make things a little easier, huh?! I mean, with RSS feeds, every morning when you check your e-mail, you’ll get updates for your favorite Web sites too, all at the same time. Let’s check this out!

1.) First of all, you need to get the RSS feed URL for your favorite Web sites. If you know the site has a feed URL, you can usually find it right on the homepage. If you’re not sure or you can’t find it, a Google search, such as “[site name] RSS feed,” should help you locate it.

2.) Once you’ve found the RSS link, right click it and choose Copy.

3.) To actually get the feed into your e-mail, we’ll be using a free service called RSSFWD. Now, you’ll need to go to their Web site, which can be found here.

4.) The homepage will look a little something like this:

5.) Right click again and choose Paste to lock in the RSS URL you copied earlier. Then click Submit.

6.) Next, enter in your e-mail address. A sample of what your e-mail updates will look like will then be displayed at the bottom of the e-mail.

7.) The next part is very important, so please pay attention! You need to select how you would like your e-mails to be formatted. There are six different options to choose from.

8.) I liked the Digest option the best. With that one, you receive all of the updates in one single e-mail in the morning. That way, your Inbox won’t be so crowded with RSS updates. You can select whichever option looks right for you though. When you’re finished, press the Subscribe button.

9.) You will then receive a confirmation e-mail.

Just click the confirmation link inside the e-mail and you’ll be good to go! The RSSFWD service will start sending you e-mail updates in accordance to the preferences you chose. Enjoy!
