AtoMail 0.7

AtoMail is a Python script that converts mail into an (Atom) RSS feed.
AtoMail is a Python script that converts mail into an (Atom) RSS feed. This is for example useful for tracking announcement mailinglists in your favorite RSS reader, if no classic RSS feed is available.

Mail can be retrieved from many different sources, including local mailboxes, remote mailboxes (POP3/IMAP4), and usenet newsgroups (NNTP). The goal of AtoMail is to be clean, modular, well documented, and easy to modify.

Beware that AtoMail is still in alpha stage, and that it probably contains bugs.


· Python >= 2.4. Although most modes should work on Python >=2.3, this program has only been tested with Python >= 2.4.


AtoMail can be used to create feeds of messages coming from many different sources. The source from which AtoMail is to retrieve the messages is set by the –mode parameter. Here are some example use cases.

Known issues

· All modes except the filter mode compare the date of the message against the last-updated date. This gives problems with incorrect message dates.
· There are some problems with mails containing non-ascii characters


· Python 2.4
