I'm receiving a weekly google alert to my gmail account which I would like to post as an RSS feed, so people can subscribe to this same alert as a weekly update. Anyone know where I can forward this email for it to make the conversion to RSS?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

I personally use Emails to RSS Forwarding to read Google Alerts as RSS stream. The service provides special email address to forward emails to and builds RSS feed based on them. Here is Guide how to setup it with Gmail

Just go back to your Google Alert account page and either change the 'Deliver to' setting to 'feed'. If you'd prefer to keep your existing email version, simply replicate the the prior settings you already had created but use a feed instead of email output.

hope this helps...

Here's one way you can do it:

You can setup a free wordpress.com blog, enable 'post by email' and then setup a rule to forward the emails that you want in an RSS feed to the wordpress blog. Then grab the RSS feed from the wordpress blog (just add a /feed to the end of the wordpress.com URL).
