There are a couple of ways to fix the problem of Outlook RSS Feeds not updating on your windows computer.

Change frequency to check RSS Feeds

When you add a new RSS feed in Outlook, the system checks for updates at a particular time interval. If something goes wrong in between, you might not receive new updates from that feed.

To ensure that your RSS Feeds are updating properly, check that the Update Limit feature is turned on. To do this, open Microsoft Outlook > File > Account Settings. Select Account Settings again, then switch to the RSS Feeds tab. Click on the Change button, and make sure that the Update Limit check box is selected.

Next, go to Send/Receive tab in Outlook. Here you need to click on Send/Receive Groups option and select Define Send/Receive Groups. On the next menu, select Schedule an automatic send/receive every 30 or 60 minutes.

Download the full article as a .html attachment

If you receive a summary of all the articles in an RSS feed and want to download the entire article, you can do so by opening the article in your web browser and selecting the “Download” option.

Open RSS Feed in Outlook’s Account Settings. Select an RSS Feed and click Change. Select to Download the full article as a .html attachment.

You can enable Automatically download enclosures for this RSS Feed. It will let you download all the attachments included in one article.

Synchronize RSS Feeds to the Common Feed List

To do this, you need to follow these steps:

  • Click on File, then click Options.
  • Click Advanced.
  • Select Synchronize RSS Feeds to the Common Feed List (CFL) in Windows.

Occasionally, this problem can occur when the PST file where RSS Feed content is saved becomes corrupted. If this is the case, you need to follow these steps to create a separate PST file for delivering RSS feed items to the PST location.

Open the RSS Feeds tab in Microsoft Outlook’s account settings, click the Change button, then select the Change Folder option and click New Outlook Data File.

Create a new Outlook profile

All email accounts are saved as profiles in Outlook. If a profile becomes corrupted, you may experience problems. To fix this, delete the existing profile, create a new one, add email accounts to the new profile, and then add new RSS feeds.

In order to delete your profile, you will need to open Control Panel on your computer and change the view to large icons. From here, click on Mail (Microsoft Outlook) and then click on the Show Profiles button. Select the profile you wish to delete and click on Remove.

After you click the “Add” button, you’ll need to add a new email account and some RSS Feeds.
