Automatically connecting to a Sharepoint RSS Feed througth GPO RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm wondering if you can help me. we have a requirement that all members of the domain should have an RSS feed to announcements we post on sharepoint within Outlook 2007.

    I know it is possible view the list within Outlook 2007 as I have managed to connect to it by selecting it in sharepoint. However how can I set the group policy to always connect to is for my users.

    I understand the GPO asks for a feed:\\ url. So in my example "https://locallan.com/_layouts/listfeed.aspx?List=%7B16F887FA%2D2D2F%2D4547%2D87B7%2DB1ED3EB167FB%7D" brings up the RSS feed.

    Should be "feed://locallan.com/_layouts/listfeed.aspx?List=%7B16F887FA%2D2D2F%2D4547%2D87B7%2DB1ED3EB167FB%7D

    However this doesn't seem to work. I have looked all over the internet, but there doesn't seem to be an answer to this.

    How to I properly connect to a sharepoint RSS feed from outlook using GPO.

    Many thanks

    Kevin Halstead

  • Hi, did you figure this out? I don't want to spend too much time on this as well. Only post related I saw is this one.

    I have tried stupid things like:


    I believe they didn't write in that functionality for the GPO.
