I might be being dense, but I was wondering if there is a RSS feed that displays entries from our 'inbox'? If not, then perhaps a feature suggestion.

I use a RSS reader a lot and it updates constantly in the background - I just thought it'd be cool.

I have just added this capability to my website. You can read all of the details here.

Basically the process goes something like this:

  1. Register for an account on my website.
  2. Connect your new account to your Stack Exchange profile.
  3. Authorize my website to access your inbox.
  4. Receive a custom RSS feed URL that contains the contents of your inbox.

Nathan is correct. For a close approximation, though, try this: https://apple.stackexchange.com/feeds/user/15589/responses

(substitute your own user number for best results; this one is for the OP)

  • Oh Safari and your 'feed://' "protocol" handler :/. Jan 5, 2012 at 7:36
  • Sorry, @JasonSalaz I copied and pasted without checking the protocol.

  • This seems to be "responses from so-and-so," rather than "responses to so-and-so."

Currently, this feature isn't available.

It's been asked for before, actually.

The solution, according to answers to the above post, is that you would have to convert the JSON to RSS yourself. Not hard, but not exactly automatic.
