Categories allow you to browse specific content in your reading list, and get even more powerful when you set up custom digests. By default, a Category's subscriptions are sent in your daily digest, but they can instead have their own custom daily or weekly digests (Pro users can even direct category digests to different email addresses).

If the message isn't from the site you authorized, the address may have been compromised (sold, stolen, or just sending you irrelevant messages you didn't want), and you can Revoke Access to shut them down.
