RSS is NOT Email

Steve Makofsky: RSS is NOT email. Email is stuff that I (usually) need to address right away, where as with RSS I'm reading (and searching) content based on a topic.

Randy: I don't like the RSS Inbox either. Mind you, I hate Outlook and my Gmail inbox is cleared several times per hour. But, to each his own. What I don't understand are people who install RSS ad-ins for Outlook. Why not just use an RSS to SMTP gateway like Rmail?
