In Microsoft Outlook 2013 under Windows 8.1 I have various rules which execute several VBA scripts.
For this I have:
Files → Options → Trust Center → Macrosettings → Activate all macros
And also the registry entry:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Outlook\Security DWORD: EnableUnsafeClientMailRules Value: 1
Now I want incoming RSS feeds to trigger the execution of a script as well, but I can't make it work. (I am sure, that this had worked a while ago (2 years?), but that was on a different computer, to which I have no access any more. Possible Microsoft "security update" once again?)
Anyway, to add RSS feeds, I used
Files → Account settings → RSS Feeds → New
One such feed is
The feeds work nicely, and messages are obtained as desired. By default, they go into an automatically created folder beneath my mail account on the left hand pane:
email@example.com ... RSS feeds ... CNN Europe
Now to create a rule, I use the blank rule template to create a rule for messages received by me.
In there is a selectable condition "from arbitrary RSS feeds". I select it, and on the next page I select "execute a script". I select the intended script and finish the rule.
The feeds produce messages, but the script is never entered (I put a breakpoint on the first executable statement).
I tried to change the location into which the feeds go, by using an alternate destination, so as to make it appear as if the feeds are part of my inbox.
firstname.lastname@example.org Inbox ... RSS ... CNN Europe
To no avail: the rule simply does not execute.
