How to Send Email Newsletters to Your RSS Reader

Standard

In my previous post How to Save RSS, I asked the RSS developers to create a newsletter reader. My wish was to redirect my content newsletters out of my email Inbox and over to my RSS Reader. One of the suggestions I got in the comments was to use InoReader. If you pay for the Plus version, which is $30 a year, you get the Mail2Tag feature. I’m a big fan of free and don’t like paying for features that I can’t test out. I prefer trial periods.

Anyway, I kept thinking about how to solve this problem and with enough searching I came up with a solution that is FREE and doesn’t require changing your RSS Reader.

  1. Get a Google Account if you don’t already have one.
  2. Go to Emails to RSS Feed and log in.
  3. Register an Email Bridge address. This will be the email address you use to sign up for newsletters. They allow you to create multiple addresses. Each one generates a unique RSS Feed. Since I don’t want anyone guessing that email address, I put some junk characters in mine.
  4. Take the generated RSS Feed and subscribe to it to your Reader. Rename it something friendly.
  5. Go forth and subscribe to newsletters with your Email Bridge address. Instead of cluttering up your Email Inbox, they will be waiting for you inside a folder of your choosing in your RSS Reader.

    Nice, I’ve set it up. But I mostly stopped doing the newsletters, because it was just duplicate content. This might come in handy though, and now I’m ready. Thanks! Actually before I posted this, I signed up for your newsletter again. So we’ll see how this works eventually.
