Techie Tip of the Week: Add RSS feed to Stanford Email

Have you ever wanted to keep up with an RSS feed? (What’s RSS? A video from the Common Craft Show, “RSS in Plain English“, explains it well.)

Now you can, directly from your Stanford Email!

  1. In your web browser, go to Stanford Email
    http://webmail.stanford.edu/
  2. Click the Mail tab.
  3. Click the New Folder button.
  4. Enter a name for the folder and click the Subscribe to RSS/ATOM feed checkbox.
  5. In the URL field, enter the address of the feed you’d like to read. (For example, the Stanford News Service has a feed at http://news-service.stanford.edu/rss/index.xml.)

Updates will now automatically feed to your folder and be marked as unread.
