    Is there anyway to change the refresh time on the RSS Feeds in Mail.app?

    30 Minutes sucks. I want every 1 or 5 minutes.

    I would also like to know this. RSS feeds, especially those from news sites like CNN or MSNBC are updated much faster than every 30min. Anyone know a work around?

    If you're running leopard, and only leopard (no tiger hack), then open mail preferences and go to RSS, and make mail the default RSS reader. Now Go File>add RSS Feeds and then check the RSS feeds you want to add.

    yes Leopard, I made Mail default rss reader


    When I goto file, add rss feeds.

    How do I pick and add them? I don't see anything there.

    Well I think that it imports your safari RSS feeds, so bookmark an RSS feed in safari and it will show up.

    If you get into RSS you might as well get a good application for reading them. Both NetNewsWire and NewsFire are free. Google them and download either/both for no cost. I think you'll be happier with either of the two vs. Mail. I personally like NNW more than NewsFire, but each is free so why not try them both and decide for yourself.
