Does Microsoft or anyone provide an email update or feed that will notify me when there is a service pack or important update available? I was recently put in charge of a group of servers and come to find out, majority are missing service packs and updates. I just want to make sure that when the next update or service pack comes out, I will know about it and be ready for it.

Filehippo is cool, but i just want to know about Microsoft.

Windows Server 2008 has a built in feature to control updates and can roll them out to clients across your network.

Take a look at Windows Server Update Services

Security Alert feeds here:

Office and Related updates feed here:

WSUS is a good way to go, I've used it a bit and it has some good reporting ability for the machines it is in charge of. You can see if certain updates fail, and on which machines. – Melikoth Feb 9 '12 at 16:11
