Is there an email to RSS service that delivers full text?

Chris March 14, 2010

I subscribe to an awful lot of email newsletters, etc. that I’d like to access through Google Reader. However, all the options I’ve tried (Gmail through FreeMyFeed, Dodgeit, mailcatch, etc.) – either don’t actually deliver the email or (more annoyingly) ONLY show the header in Google Reader, making it necessary to leave GoogleReader to go to that mail site to read the mail.

Is there any service that will delivery the *full* message to Google Reader, so I can read the whole message in Google Reader?

    I actually figured out how to do it (Tina - neither toRSS or Mailbucket seem to be operational right now...I tried both, and neither even received the email I sent; Jack - my issue wasn't getting the mail; but getting the *whole* mail, which that fix wouldn't do).

    But, late last nite I stumbled on this:

    Check #4 - that's what I'm doing, and it works very well (even keeps the html formatting intact!)

      Thanks for sharing the solution, Chris!

      Forwarding your eMail subscriptions to a Blogger eMail address that will automatically post it to a "forward blog" and then subscribe to that blog is a very smart workaround.

      Thanks. Question on #4. Is the information showing up on google searches or is it private and you are the only one that sees it?

    Hi Chris,
    You may try creating a label and use to access your feed. Replace the word label with your label name.

    Have a read of this for more information. I hope it solves your problem.

    I can only suggest two more tools that I found in the MakeUseOf Directory. I can not guarantee they will forward the full message, although I'd expect them to do that since they forward the eMail you're receiving.
