I administer a wiki on a machine on our LAN with a private IP. This means that I can't subscribe to the RSS feeds from it with Google Reader as I do for all other RSS feeds. Up till now I have subscribed to these feeds in Outlook but our company mail is migrating to Google Mail and I will soon stop using Outlook.

I don't want to install a fully-fledged RSS reader just for the few feeds from the wiki and was wondering if there is some lightweight RSS forwarder app or service I can run on my workstation that can consume the feeds and forward posts to me as email messages.

RSS2Email (open source) sounds like what you're looking for.

Thanks, I'll check it out. – Steve Crane Feb 17 '12 at 7:47
    
Following the readme to set it up but it isn't working. The first time I try to run it with "r2e new ..." it throws an exception. File "rss2email.py", line 191 except Exception, e: ^ SyntaxError: invalid syntax and I don't know enough about Python to figure out what's wrong. – Steve Crane Feb 17 '12 at 14:04
    
I'm afraid I'm no Python expert myself, but have you got Python 3 instead of Python 2? The two aren't compatible which could lead to a syntax error. – David Cornish Feb 18 '12 at 12:40
    
Ah, that will be it. I just grabbed what looked like the latest version of Python; didn't realise they weren't compatible. Will get Python 2 on Monday and try again. – Steve Crane Feb 18 '12 at 22:14
