How to Add RSS Feeds to Apple Mail

Save

RSS Feeds are everywhere. News websites, your favorite blogs, even your company website probably uses RSS to publish an automatically updated list of new content. You can keep up with your favorite websites without actually visiting them by subscribing to their RSS feeds and aggregating all those feeds into one program or site like Google Reader, FeedDemon, your web browser and even Apple's Mail. Here's how to set up Mail to pull in all your RSS subscriptions.

Things You'll Need

  • Apple Macintosh Computer running Mac OS 10.5 Leopard or higher
  • Apple Mail
  • Launch Mail by clicking its icon on the Dock or finding it in the Applications Folder.

  • Select "File" from the top menu and click on "Add RSS Feeds."

  • Select the radio button next to "Browse feeds in Safari Bookmarks" if you want to locate all the previously saved feeds in Safari. This will scan all your Safari bookmarks and bring up the ones that have RSS feeds associated with them into this window.

  • Click on the checkboxes next to the names of all the feeds imported from Safari that you want to add to Apple Mail's RSS feed reader.

  • Click the "Add" button to add all those RSS feeds to Mail.

  • Select the checkbox next to "Show in Inbox" if you want the updated feed items to show up in your inbox with the rest of your mail. Otherwise, leave it unchecked.

  • Click on the radio button next to "Specify a Custom Feed URL" if you know the feed address and want to enter it in yourself.

  • Select the checkbox next to "Show in Inbox" if you want the updated feed items to show up in your inbox with the rest of your mail. Otherwise, leave it unchecked.

  • Type in the RSS feed URL in the box below and click "Add" to add this feed to Mail's feed reader.

  • Look under "RSS" on the left side of Apple Mail's window to see all the feeds. Happy reading!

Tips & Warnings

  • You can also click on the plus sign at the bottom left of Apple Mail's window and select "Add RSS Feed" instead of going up to the top menu.
  • The number of new items in a feed will show up next to the feed name.
