RSS Feeds, best practices
CIT encourages RSS feeds to be created in a web browser, not Outlook email.
What is RSS?
RSS provides a convenient way for content publishers to distribute
information in a standardized format. This standard format can be easily read via email, a web browser, or a dedicated RSS Reader. A common example of RSS content is sources of
information such as news headlines (CNN or MSNBC, etc.) that are frequently updated.
CIT recommends using a dedicated reader or a web browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, etc..) to hold the RSS subscription. Outlook is bloated when used to hold RSS subscriptions.
To delete an RSS feed subscription from Outlook:
1. Select the Backstage View (File) tab and from the Info category, select "Account Settings", "Account Settings..."
Each internet Browser will create an RSS feed a little differently. Users are encouraged to read\research RSS Feeds and use the option that most benefits your needs. Look for this symbol on a page that would be available for an RSS subscription:
Here is a Microsoft article that explains RSS feeds in depth.
