Tip: Use Google Reader synchronization to never loose any news

Since RSSOwl 2.1 you can synchronize your entire list of subscriptions with a Google Reader account. One of the less obvious advantages of doing so is being able to download an unlimited number of news from any feed you are subscribed to, even if the news is old enough to no longer be part of the feed. This is because Google stores all news of the feeds you are subscribed to on their servers and RSSOwl can access them directly from Google.

To configure this, simply set the number of news to keep per feed (Properties | Clean Up | Maximum number of news to keep) to a high value (up to 1000) and RSSOwl will download all news until the limit is reached. Similar, even when you are on vacation for some weeks, as soon as RSSOwl loads the feed after you are back, you will not loose any article.
