Software for RSS Feeds
easiest way to get RSS feeds is to use Info Aggregator. Its free and easy to do. RSS feeds are then delivered to your inbox.
Another product that integrates with Outlook is Newsgator.
If you would like a product that integrates with Internet Explorer, you may want to try Pluck.com.
If you would prefer a more robust standalone product try one of these links:

Once you have a reader or Outlook plugin installed, all you need to do is tell the
application which RSSfeeds you want to receive. The folks offering Info Aggregator are kind enough to provide a directory of more than 11,000 feeds from blogs. However, you can also get feeds from government agencies, the BBC, Yahoo News, and more.
