Example use cases
Online feed reader
For the sake of I-want-the-mutt-of-feed-readers zealots, it is possible to turn any mail reader into a feed reader, by having imm send an e-mail with unread elements to an arbitrary address. You can then browse your feeds through your favourite mail reader, and leverage any mail-related tool on your feeds. Bonus points if your mail reader is online as you can now access your feeds from any computer connected to the Internet.
imm is able to store a local copy of unread elements, to read them later while offline for example. External links won’t work offline though.
Subscribe to a feed:
imm subscribe http://your.feed.org
Import feeds from an OPML file:
cat feeds.opml | imm import
