If you were to have a look in the code section of this website you will note the arrival of rss2mail (or rss_to_mail, the focus group results aren't in yet). It does exactly what it says on the tin: RSS feeds are transformed through the wonders of Perl into email. Plain text email, pure ASCII goodness all the way.
It requires a string of Perl modules including the badly named (suggestions welcome) Foo2Mail. It's still got a few rough edges and could really do with an easier configuration system (i.e one that doesn't involve editing the configuration file), some tests, and some sort of automated installation but it works for me. Comments, patches, feature requests and marketing strategies to code at exo dot org dot uk.
