RSS Feeds Overview

SmarterMail's built-in RSS feed reader makes keeping up with your favorite websites as easy as checking your email. Instead of checking a site repeatedly for updates, RSS feeds allow people to automatically be notified when a website contains new posts or entries.

To access your RSS feeds, click the RSS feeds icon.

For help understanding the different areas of the RSS feeds section, see the RSS feeds interface diagram.

Navigating Your RSS Feeds

When you view your RSS feeds, the page is divided into two sections:

  • The navigation pane displays all of the RSS feeds you have added to SmarterMail. To view recent updates to a specific RSS feed, simply click the desired feed.
  • The content pane displays the RSS feeds in the folder you are viewing.

In general, the following options are available from the navigation pane toolbar:

  • Actions - Click this button and select the appropriate option to create a new folder, rename a folder, or delete a selected folder. Using folders makes it easy to keep your news items organized. For example, create folders for technology items, politics, business or other categories.

In general, the following options are available from the content pane toolbar:

  • New - Adds a new RSS feed to SmarterMail.
  • Edit - Edits the selected RSS feed.
  • Delete - Deletes the selected RSS feed(s).
