Quick Tips: Quick Tips: Adding an RSS feed in Outlook 2007

Molly Wood shows you how to subscribe to RSS feeds and read them right alongside your e-mail.

[ Music ] ^M00:00:02 >> Hi, I'm Molly Wood and I've got a quick tip for you on how to add an RSS feed to Outlook 2007. Now, the latest version of Outlook acts as an RSS reader and it's pretty handy because your RSS feed show up in the regular list of e-mail folders. Here's how it's done. To add a feed, first visit the website that you want and click the orange RSS button in the URL bar. Now, copy the URL and return to Outlook. In Outlook, click Tools and choose Account Settings, choose the RSS feed's tab and click New. Now, paste in the URL for the feed you want. You'll see a pop-up window that let's you name the feed and configure some other settings, like which folder to start add-ons in and whether to download the full article. Click OK and then close. Now, you should see an e-mail folder called RSS Feeds marked with an orange RSS symbol in your sidebar here. Expand it and there you go. All the latest stories looking just like e-mails. You can forward them just like e-mails or you can right click a story and choose Share This Feed to get your friends to subscribe to all the same stuff you read. And to make it easier to add more feeds, you can now right click the RSS Feeds option in the sidebar here and choose Add More Feeds. Easy as can be. ^M00:01:07 [ Music ]
