Want to receive Connect notificationsf in your Outlook RSS folder? It's a great way to find out what's new in the areas that interest you on the Connect site, without cluttering your Inbox with notifications. Just follow these few steps to get up and running with a Connect RSS feed in Microsoft Outlook:

Note: The RSS feed only captures new posts, not comments made.

1.       Go to Symantec Connect www.symantec.com/connect, and right-click on the RSS Feed orange logo at the level that you want to save your RSS (in this example, for all Cluster Server Forums) and click Copy Link Address.

Great article Kimberley!

Just a note to mention that if you want to grab an RSS feed that's even more targeted than the orange RSS icons offer, use the RSS Builder tool to specify a feed that's crazy granular:
