RSS Aggregation in Outlook 12

Michael Affronti, Microsoft’s Outlook program manager:

“RSS Aggregation in Outlook is aimed at providing the user with a consistent look, feel, and experience while interacting with RSS feeds and related information.  While RSS can be a complex technology to interact with, Outlook will merge the complexities and cover it with our friendly user interface.  From the beginning of interacting with a feed using the subscription process through managing your feeds, their associated folder hierarchies, and potentially sharing feeds with others, Outlook will cover RSS in those situations from end-to-end.”

Michael covers more at this post.

    I have been desperately trying to find someone who can point me in the right direction; I am not an Office 12 tester; however I have found a bug that is annoying the HELL out of me.  The RSS aggregator keeps "loosing" my feeds, they don’t show up in the RSS Feeds tab of "Account Settings" and they don’t synchronize.  However, if I re-add them I get duplicate directories (the feed names are also appended with a (1)).  Another related bug I was getting was that these same ‘problematic’ feeds (including Raymond Chen’s) couldn’t synchronize because outlook failed to connect to the server (or an OLE registration problem occurred).  I hope this gets pointed in the right direction towards a fix for RC1.
