Is anyone else a little concerned by how RSS Feeds are currently being managed in Mail 5? I use Mail as my default RSS reader in Snow Leopard, and I'm not feeling how RSS is handled in Mail 5 in Lion.

What don't you like about it?

It seems to be grouping lots of separate news stories together, and I don't quite understand why. It seems to be grouping the stories by day, and then putting each story in that group as a separate item. I want each story to be listed separately, like it currently is in Mail 4.

I don't use feeds in mail, but I assume you've got into the settings and tried changing them?

Why do you use your Mail application for RSS feeds? Wouldn't it be better if you download a RSS reader from the app store.

I don't know why I use Mail - I just always have done. It works great, and does what I need it to. I guess if they keep RSS feeds the way they are in Mail 5, I'll have to transition to an RSS reader from the App Store. I suppose it's as good of a time as any to do so.
