Can I link an RSS feed to an e-mail account? In other words, so each time there is a new item in the feed I'll get a notification by e-mail?


Embrace the magic of if-this-then-that.

Recipes such as this one allow for consuming an RSS feed and sending an email message for new items. There are dozens (if not hundreds) of recipes for specific RSS feeds.

If you want to build your own, you'd want to use the Feed channel with the "New feed item" or "New feed item matches" (simple search) trigger (as your THIS). Then add the Email channel with the "Send me an email" action (as your THAT).

  • Another option is feedmyinbox.com. Free for 2 feeds, if you want more you have to pay – waanders Nov 18 '13 at 17:13

If the source uses Feedburner to manage their feed(s) you can easily sign up to receive the feed via email. (Just click the link "Get {feed name} delivered by email" when you click the Feedburner link.

Alternatively, you can set up your own Feedburner account and pull in the site's RSS feed and subscribe by email that way. If they make changes to the feed, though, you have no control.
