UPDATE April 2021: The service discussed in this post is no longer working.
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.
- Get a Google Account if you don’t already have one.
- Go to Emails to RSS Feed and log in.
- 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.
- Take the generated RSS Feed and subscribe to it to your Reader. Rename it something friendly.
- 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.
