The TTL element is optional and some feeds (such as those from the Stack Trilogy) don’t contain it.
When Outlook doesn’t find a TTL, everything defaults to 60 minutes.
So why are RSS feeds so darned slow to update in Outlook?
After an email exchange and a little bit of prodding in the right direction from Yours Truly Mr.
You’ll need to use a MAPI editor, such as MFCMAPI Editor or Outlook Spy, to hide or delete the folder.RSS stands for “Really Simple Syndication” or “Rich Site Summary.” It’s a document specification that allows you to easily collect and organize web-based news and information from websites in a standardized format commonly called a feed, which is like a bookmark that actively updates itself.You can subscribe to RSS feeds using a tool called an RSS feed reader.To use the group policy templates you need to add the Outlook policy template to the Group Policy Editor.You can do this one of two ways: Import the Outlook template or Save the Office policy templates to the Policy Definitions folder.So in this default situation, Outlook will check for updates once per hour.To avoid this default one-hour situation, it is necessary to instruct Outlook to ignore the publisher’s recommendations (even though the publisher hasn’t made any explicit recommendations, the absence of a recommendation implies a 60-minute update cycle by default).When browsing the Internet and coming across a website that I like, I often subscribe to their RSS feed via Internet Explorer and then it will automatically go into Outlook. However, in Internet Explorer, I’ve grouped my RSS feeds based on their topic but in Outlook this just shows up as a long list and I’d have to sort it again.Is there any way that I can have Outlook mimic the folder structure that I created via Internet Explorer?We’ve received some reports of users noticing that their feeds subscription stop updating after upgrades.Our investigations show that these tend to occur after upgrades from one pre-release build of Windows Vista to another version.
