email-to-rss

This is a simple script that downloads unread emails from IMAP folder(s) and converts them into an RSS feed.

I wrote it to move mailing list traffic out of my gmail and into google reader.

Dependencies

Setup

  • fetchmail needs to be on your path.

  • config.system needs to point at MHonArc (it doesn't need to be installed system-wide)

  • Optionally, edit HTMLPATH to point at the folder where you want output RSS+HTML to live. (I use a public Dropbox folder for maximum convenience.)

  • Edit config.user.example with your account details and save it as config.user

  • Set it up to run automatically.
