    I don't use Mail as my RSS reader, but it appears that it is dependent on the feed, not on any setting within mail. I tested this with a friend of mine's blog and was able to read the entire post within Mail.

    Some organizations, particularly ones who make money by having you visit their website, only put out truncated RSS feeds to assure that you are visiting their site.

    thunderbird allows yu to view the full story within email client---by load the full page there.

    it depends on the feeds.
