Configuring an Outlook RSS feed for this blog

Filed under best practices,email

I have had a couple of people ask if I could send out regular e-mails about any new posts on the blog.  That way they could just review the summary and decide if they were interested, without needing to go to the blog each day to check for updates.

While I suppose I could do that, it would generate a lot of extra email for those who have no interest in this blog.  The better solution would be for those who would like to stay up to date on the latest phishing alerts, scams, and other security information to add an RSS feed of this blog to their Outlook mailbox. This would allow new updates to be sent directly to their Outlook mailboxes for review.

If you go into Outlook, you should see a folder called “RSS Feeds” (see picture below).  Right-click on the folder and select “Add a New RSS Feed”.  In the dialog box that appears, enter “http://blogs.egusd.net/infosec/feed”.  Once you do that, all posts to the blog will be sent to the EGUSD Information Security folder under “RSS Feeds”.
