I'm a fan of NewzCrawler myself, as it seems like the most polished among the aggregators.

If I was running Outlook regularly, I'd probably be running NewsGatory, though:

(Unaffiliated with both, though I do know the NewsGator author lives somewhere near me :))

I've been using SharpReader for about a week now and I love it. I've not tried the other feed readers but I love the ability to browse RSS feeds across many sources. Good Stuff.

Is there any free Outlook plug-in like NewsGator?

What you guys think about FeedReader?

NewsGator is the only Outlook plugin for RSS reading that I've ever seen.

I have to chime in here. I've tried most of the aggregators out there, and drifted away pretty quickly. Aesthetically, they just weren't right, or added far too much overhead to be used as a device. I've stuck with SharpReader now since around the day it was released. Great piece of software, mostly because it doesn't get in the way.

This passes the TiVo test. I watch far more TV because the TiVo is easy to use and presents me with choice (too much, probably). SharpReader strikes the right balance and I end up reading far too much news.
