Integration with Web feeds

RSS and Atom feeds could be collected using rss2email program. It converts all incoming feed entries to email messages. Read about how to integrate Integration with Postfix/Integration with Exim with email. rss2email could be run in a cron, to collect feeds without any user interaction. Also this program supports ETags and won’t pollute the channel if remote server supports them too.

$ r2e new rss-robot@address.com

and add feeds you want to retrieve:

$ r2e add http://www.git.cypherpunks.ru/?p=nncp.git;a=atom

and run the process:
