10.5: Import RSS feeds into Mail Apps
If you'd like to move your collection of RSS feeds into 10.5's Mail, here's how:
  1. Export an OPML file from your favorite feed reader (Google Reader for me)
  2. Run the following command in Terminal: perl -lne 'print $1 if /"(http.*?)"/' google-reader-subscriptions.xml | pbcopy
  3. Open Mail
  4. Go to File » Add RSS Feeds...
  5. Choose the Specify a custom feed URL radio button
  6. Click in the entry box and hit Command-V to paste the feed URLs
  7. Click the Add button

Works for me, although note that folders/groups (from Vienna, in my case) aren't preserved.

Yeah, the Perl code only grabs the URLs out of the OPML file (no structure is preserver) because the "Add RSS Feeds..." doesn't give you the ability to add that structure.

For NetNewsWire just use drag and drop

I'm not sure about other feed readers but you can drag your RSS feeds directly from the NetNewsWire feed list into Mail's sidebar.

This is nice but... HOW can I import the feeds from into Safari?
(So the other way around)
