TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
Richard is correct about Outlook. Be aware that Thunderbird has the same

Feedly has an "Add Content" button on the home page (once you've
registered--free). You can paste the site or feed URL, or just type in the
title in the search window, and the site you want should appear in the list
