I have Outlook 2007, but I'm having trouble adding RSS feeds. When I go 'Tools -> Account Settings...', I have no RSS Feeds tab (that should apparently be there), and when I right click the RSS Feeds folder, the options for 'Add a New RSS Feed' and 'Import an OPML File...' are both grayed out.

I have found a post on here that suggested an option was long ago clicked to remove RSS feeds, but I honestly don't know if that is the case. The post suggested removing a registry key to re-enable all RSS features, but said key does not exist.

Does anybody know what is going on here? Thanks.

Are using Outlook on a network at your work? If so, this could be a restriction put in place by the network administrator. If the registry key in not there, my guess is there is a policy disabling it. – CharlieRB Feb 11 '13 at 12:52
    
@CharlieRB - Good call, it was an ancient GPO that disabled RSS features in Outlook. Changed the GPO yesterday, and all is fine at when logging on today. Thanks for the tip. – David Gard Feb 12 '13 at 11:59
