10.7: Mail 5 Contact Photos for RSS Apps
Mail 5 in Lion includes a view option to show contact photos in the message list. This is great for people, but what about RSS? Instead of a generic person icon, you can get something better.

Create an Address Book contact with each feed author listed in the email block (they don't have to be actual addresses). To find the RSS author or group name, save a copy of a feed item and look for the "X-Mail-Rss-Source-Name" in the .eml file.

Depending on the contact you setup, you may need to organize your feeds or smart mailboxes by conversation to see the result.

I'm interested to know if Apple will change this in an update, because it appears to be a bug to show lists like this that would never have contacts. I've would have submitted a bug report, but is ironically down with an error. Guess there are lot's of bugs today!
