Subscribing to RSS Feeds in Mac Mail
Finding and Subscribing to RSS Feeds via Safari
Using your Safari browser, you can easily find the RSS feed of any page that has one, such as a blog, and add it to your Mac Mail software.
Open Safari and go to the website or blog you would like to follow via RSS. If the page or blog has an RSS feed, you will see the RSS button at the end of the address bar. Click this RSS button.
Looking at the page's feed, click the plus sign ( + ) icon in the address bar (located before the URL).
In the drop-down box, check the box for "Mail". If you check both the Safari and Mail boxes, your feed will appear in both applications. After you have made your selection, click the Add button.
In Mail, the RSS feed will appear beneath the RSS section of your left sidebar, labeled with the name of the site or blog. Going forward, new articles published to this feed will automatically be delivered to you.
Setting RSS Preferences
In Mail, click on the Mail menu, and choose Preferences... In the Preferences window, go to the RSS section. In this window, you may specify your default reader, how often your reader checks for feed updates, and how Mail will remove articles from your feeds.
Manually Adding an RSS Feed to your Mail
Open Mail, then go to the File menu and choose "Add RSS Feeds..."
- Click the button for "Specify the URL for a feed".
- Type or paste the feed URL into the field.
Click the "Add" button.
Mac Mail will import the most recent articles into your Mail account under the heading "RSS" in your left sidebar. Going forward, new articles published to this feed will automatically be delivered to you.
