How do I edit an RSS feed URL in Outlook 2007?

I tried figuring out on my own for some time, but I wasn't able to find a way.

NOTE: I was able to change/modify all other properties, like Feed Name, Delivery Location, Downloads and Update Limit, though, except Feed URL from Tools -> Account Settings -> RSS Feeds -> Change...

There doesn't appear to be a convenient way to do it. It might be easiest to add a new feed with the address you want. Then point that feed to the folder you were using previously.

This could be a workaround. But, I'm surprised there is no easy way to edit/modify existing Feed URL directly. –  Gnanam May 23 '12 at 11:58
    
I was surprised too. But in a way it makes sense as changing the URL essentially changes the feed entirely. RSS is based on the URL more than anything. As simple as it is to add a feed, they probably just let that be it. –  CharlieRB May 23 '12 at 12:36
    
Agreed, but there are cases (mine too) where the Feed provider itself just changing the URL path alone but the feed content remains the same. BTW, thanks for your comment. –  Gnanam May 28 '12 at 6:19
