10.5: Organize RSS Feeds in Mail via folders Apps
The new Mail.app in Leopard lets you organize RSS Feeds as you would mailboxes in the "On My Mac" section of Mail. Simply highlight an RSS Feed and select Mailbox » New Mailbox from the Mailbox menu.

Drag and drop your RSS Feeds as you like; this helps greatly reduce the clutter factor.

I did this as well, and I also created a smart folder with all unread RSS messages in it, so if I want to get a list of all new RSS messages without expanding the RSS heading in Mail, I can just go to the smart folder.

I was wondering if there is some shortcut to, when viewing a new rss item, to open that item in safari? With netnewswire and other programs, there is a shortcut for that (in nnw it was pressing the right key I think).

Discovered this myself earlier today. Something to note only as a clarification, you can create these subfolders within the RSS section itself as opposed to 'On my Mac'.

Also note, Smart Folders will only really allow searching for something like 'message type is feed' and 'message is unread' but not 'message is in mailbox' if the folders are in the RSS section

I know, replying to myself, for shame.

For those that are a tad lazy with their Feed reading and instead read a headline, think, "I'll read that later" and skip to the next headline. You can end up with a lot of unread posts in your feeds that go back weeks. This is especially a problem with those rapid-fire team posters (Coudal, Boing-Boing I'm looking at you).

So, I adjusted my Unread Feeds Smart Folder to include 'message received this week'. Try it, it takes the weight off.
