Guide Review - Aggie 1.0 - RSS News Feed Reader
Unfortunately, the email gateway is slightly broken currently and might not work for you. While Aggie comes with a simple interface, the lack of documentation can make its configuration a bit confusing, and while Aggie comes with a command line tool that can be used to schedule news updates, there's no way to schedule individual channels flexibly.
All in all, Aggie is a nice, but somehow unsatisfactory news to email gateway.
