Question How to read RSS and mails client in koboTouch?

The question is self explanatory.

RSS are made for read; mails either. And I use my koboTouch to read things. Why not...? Well, there is an way that I can get my emails directly on Kobo and read them? I do not need to send emails, just get and read.

And about RSS? How to get them and read them?

Also, it's a future firmware feature request.

You can use the beta web browser to access web mail and the web-based RSS reader of your choice. Beyond that, you'll need either an e-ink Android device or a tablet, if you want to install specialised email/RSS apps.

With RSS it depends on what you mean by reading it.
If headers are enough - it's doable with Kobo Start Menu + little bash script.
RSS address would be hardcoded that way though, so you'll need a bunch of scripts for all your RSS.
If you'll need to get a webpage RSS leads to - it's kind of doable, but you'll need a complicated parsing script (and it'll be different for all RSS) to get web page to readable state.
With e-mail, i don't think it's doable (well, i'm not really savvy in all this *nix stuff yet) at the point.

IFTTT is a great service and I've used it for a ton of things, I don't send raw feeds from sites into Pocket though because like I said earlier if you aren't selective you get a lot of junk in there. However, if you have an aggregation service of some sort that can prune your feeds into an aggregate feed of more likely candidates for reading, that's a great source for feeding into Pocket.

I use Fever for my feeds which is web-based and then have saved articles I want to read later shoved into Pocket via IFTTT which works for me but not for everyone.

IMO webmail is clumsy on the Kobo because browsing is clumsy.
