In principle, this shouldn't be possible, since sniffing is a purely
passive activity.  There are various sites that claim the existence of
tools that can somehow do this, although the techniques are not
explained, and the sites are old with broken links:


foffl.sourceforge.net - Feeds OFFLine, an offline RSS/Atom aggregator
mailmin.sourceforge.net - remote access via secure (OpenPGP) email
ssuds.sourceforge.net - A Simple Sudoku Solver and Generator
