Learn why Microsoft® Outlook RSS Feeds are not Updating
For some reason or the other, RSS Feeds stop updating automatically in Microsoft Outlook. If the Feed synchronization is corrupted and is broken then you will find that the RSS Feed is not updating in Microsoft Outlook. Because of corrupted RSS Feed database, the updation does not take place and the Microsoft Outlook RSS feeds do not update once new data is added to the SharePoint list. It is very difficult to find when and which feed has stopped updating in Microsoft Outlook and you should check for it.
Following are the possible causes of the problem and tips to fix the issue of RSS Feeds not getting updated in Microsoft Outlook:
- Due to Task Scheduler
- Exporting all out Feeds
- Reset the Feeds Store
Due to Task Scheduler
The RSS Feed in Microsoft Outlook does not update due to several reasons. This could be due to the task scheduler. You should find that, if Task Scheduler is running it causes RSS Feed not to update. The task scheduler is responsible for arranging and scheduling the jobs that are received and if the task scheduler is not performing its work properly then the RSS Feed may not update.
Exporting All Out Feeds
If the error is not caused due to the Feed synchronization issue then the problem might be with the Feed Database so you need to fix the issue. For fixing this issue you need to start exporting all out feeds so that you don’t have to re-subscribe again. Open Microsoft Outlook and click on the alt key to get the menu bar and in the file menu choose the import or export option. Export a file and click next, select feeds and click next. Then export the file to the location where you remember and click finish button.
Reset the Feeds Store
To fix the issue due to which the RSS Feeds is not updating you need to reset the Feeds database and then re-import the RSS Feeds. You must close all instances of Microsoft Outlook first and then open the local application folder and delete the files in that folder so that you can reset the Feeds database. Later you should re-import the Feed to see if the RSS Feeds are updated.
