10.5: Another way to remove RSS from Mail Apps
If you are frustrated by Mail being an RSS reader, and your only RSS feed is Apple Hot News, you can rename the Apple Hot News feed Junk, and the feed will change itself to a junk mailbox under the Junk menu, and the RSS menu will disappear.

[robg adds: I offer this as more of a "huh, that's interesting" observation that a true tip. If you don't want Mail to show RSS feeds, just Control-click on any listed feeds in the RSS section and choose Delete Feed for each. After all are deleted, the RSS section will vanish.]

10.5: Another way to remove RSS from Mail
Authored by: eagle on Jun 02, '09 08:14:25AM

I used robg's method - I just deleted all of the feeds. I use Cyndicate as my RSS reader.

What I would love is to be able to remove the "Reminders" section from Mail.app. I use iCal exclusively as my calendar and to-do application, so all of my To Dos show up in the "REMINDERS" section in Mail.app. I have never used my *mail* program as a *calendar* tool or note-taking tool, so the "REMINDERS" section is useless to me and always remains collapsed... yet it still takes up valuable vertical real estate.

Or use another RSS Reader

Or you can assign another RSS reader as the default RSS reader in Perferences -> RSS. I use NetNewsWire. When you do this, Mail does not update RSS.

Yeah, why don't you just assign Safari as the RSS reader in the Mail prefs. It then disappears in Mail.

Just go to System Preferences > Default Apps > RSS > Disable.
