Until now I was using Google Reader as a feed client, but decided to switch to Outlook 2007.

I'm trying to grab the Stack Overflow blog posts but I can't get them all.

I wish to read and listen to all of them from the very beginning, and this seems to be the easiest way of managing them.

Problem is that it stops after 10 posts.

Any ideas on how I can get the rest, with contents and attachments for all?

@e_ho, I don't think it's completely necessary to edit every post the second you reach 2000 rep. – Will Eddins Sep 22 '09 at 15:50
@Guard You're right, but only been doing it to those that look like they could do with some readability help. – random Sep 22 '09 at 15:53

Unfortunately, what you're trying to do isn't possible.

The way RSS feeds typically work is that they'll only show the 10-most recent news items. This is why when adding a feed into Google Reader, you'll have 10 unread posts immediately available.

Most RSS readers will save content over time, which is why you can view posts further back on Google Reader but not on Outlook. The same scenario should be true if you had been using Outlook all this time rather than Google Reader. It's expected behavior.

In the end, treat RSS as a way to receive new posts. If you want to read older posts, most sites would want you to resort to looking at the actual website.

Edit: In some cases, it may be possible to export the saved news from a reader and import into another. In the case of Google Reader, you can only export the URLs to all your feeds, it will not export the posts inside those feeds.

Depends on the RSS feed. Some sites will include the last 20 or only the last 6, just a site/publisher dependent thing. – random Sep 22 '09 at 15:46
