Subscribing a RSS Feed enables you to get all summaries of updated news of favorite web sites in Microsoft Outlook automatically.
Therefore, you can get the updated news’ summaries with email messages without opening those web pages any longer.
I have now been running the Office 365 Home Premium Preview, aka Office 2013 for home users, for the last few days and have observed a new behavior relating to RSS feeds in Outlook 2013.
As the subject states, when Outlook 2013 is started up and does an automatic send and receive or performs the same action on the pre-determined schedule, it does not check RSS feeds.
This is contrary to the default behavior in Outlook 2010 when RSS feeds are part of the send and receive group and are checked during all send and receive sessions.
I guess it is possible that this is simply a bug and will get sorted out in a future update but I would like to hear if anyone else is experiencing the same behavior on their Outlook 2013 installs.
If you do not want to subscribe the RSS Feeds, and get any update summaries any longer, you can remove the RSS Feeds from Microsoft Outlook.
Step 1: Shift to the Mail view with clicking the Mail in the Navigation pane.
When Outlook doesn’t find a TTL, everything defaults to 60 minutes.Step 3: In the new popping up dialog box, click Yes button, if you do not need to configure the RSS Feed options.It is optional to click the Advanced button if you need to configure some options for this new added RSS Feed, such as Feed name, delivery folder, update limitation, and so on.As my mail is my main priority, is there a way to configure Outlook in such a way that it will only download RSS feeds when I want to?RSS feeds can easily become a distraction indeed but luckily you can modify your Send/Receive settings to exclude some or all your RSS feeds from updating when Outlook checks for mails.
