Wordpress Control PanelWordpress typically allows you to control basic configurations of your RSS Feed. The features available in there will depend on the native functionalities built in your Template.
To access the native Feed settings, from your Admin Panel, go to Settings/Reading (WP 3.9.1 - May vary based on your Blog's version and settings)
You can typically control the number of posts that appear in your feed as well as the length of the article (Summary of Full Text).
Choosing "Full text" option will typically add the <content:encoded> element top your feed - which can then be available to populate your email with images and/or full article in your Digesto emails.
