    Me too! I wish I'd know this change before upgrading. Very unhappy.

    Unfortunately, that's a Safari extension, and has no functionality for Mail.

     

    From the maker:

    The gist of the extension is to make it easy to subscribe to RSS and Atom feeds in an external application, separate from Safari. For example, it will open in NetNewsWire, Reeder or any other application on your Mac that claims to support “feed:” style URLs.

     

    Never mind the fact that even if it did work, I'd still have to track down the addresses of the 20+ feeds I was subscribed to in Mail.

    Yep.

    Missed that he had this in Mail and Contacts.

     

    Gone, Gone, Gone.

     

    I have no idea why mail was ever allowed to show RSS feeds in the first place.

    Email is email and should have always stayed that.

     

    Lots of RSS readers including the older Safari. Now needs an extension.

    Now that RSS is gone I don't even open Mail.app, it has been replaced by a webmail page.

    I loved getting my RSS feeds in my email.  I hope we get that feature back.

    Get used to it, OSX no longer supports RSS. I have switched to Google reader but its a clunker compered to Mail.

    Apple is still publishing RSS feeds but removing the reading capability from their OS.

     

    Hmmm???

    I have written a little utility to extract your old RSS feeds from Safari and Mail. Download it from: http://www.etresoft.com/download/DredgeFeeds.zip

    I had to paste this command in Terminal, the list of RSS feeds pops out:

     

    pubsub --client com.apple.mail list | cut -f3

    Apple is still trying to get people to switch to the Mac. Unfortunately, with RSS feeds Apple seems to have gotten a bit ahead of itself. It seems similar to iCloud documents. I was very disappointed to see that iCloud in Lion didn't have the specific functionality I wanted. Hopefully in the near future there will be more direct website push notifications into Safari and that will make people forget about the old, kludgy RSS.
