Yesterday, I added the feed for the ASP.Net podcast series to my Common Feed List. That was definitely the wrong thing to do. Thankfully, I didn’t subscribe to Hanselminutes that way yet. Initially, everything looked ok. Then I checked the automatically download enclosures box for the feed.
- In order to get the enclosures I had to reset all messages in the feed to unread. That was cool.
- I maxed out my mailbox limit. Oh oh… It turns out that the enclosures are just like attachments in a mail item. I haven’t figured out yet how to set my RSS feed to go to a different pst file that is not attached to the exchange server and mail limits.
- I wanted to save all of the attachments to a folder. Had to write a VBA macro to do it.
End result, don’t do the automatic feed enclosure download. I might go back to RSS Bandit as my default reader. Just my thoughts.
Here is another post to add to an offline storage. I did a little more research. Maybe I will stick with Outlook as my RSS reader.
