RSS feeds on the Exchange community page


As I promised before… it’s now live. A ton of kudos for the mscom team for listening to community feedback and implementing these great features.


RSS Feed that points at the root of all the blogs registered for Exchange [i.e. a notification of newly registered Exchange bloggers]


RSS feed for links to recent posts on the Exchange blogs


RSS feed for Exchange KB articles


RSS feed for KB articles authored by Exchange MVPs


RSS feed for Exchange downloads


[Update: Fixed up links for the KB ones. Looks like there’s a character limit in the “Insert hyperlink” input box :-]


[Update 7/15: I just noticed something else cool… the list of MVPs automatically rotates, so the same few MVPs don’t monopolize the front page. That’s pretty neat.]

    The two KB feeds ("RSS feed for Exchange KB articles" and "RSS feed for KB articles authored by Exchange MVPs") seem to be broken…

    The other three seem to work with no problems…

    Your home-grown human looks like fun!

    Wish list for Outlook/Exchange – it’s probably a mile long but… Better out of office message handling for those of my colleagues who subscribe to a gazillion list servers. SBS 2003 has some improvements but not all list servers work the way as outlined in the upgrade.

    Keep smiling.

    Don’t forget that the Microsoft Community team will be hosting a live chat on 7/21 at 12:00 PST to listen to your feedback and recommendations about this new Web page design and the RSS feeds.

    Sorry for the offtopic (i couldn’t find your email).

    Is it possible that you could comment upon the recent Lookout <a href="http://www.joelonsoftware.com/items/2004/07/19.html">acquisituon</a&gt; <a href="http://discuss.fogcreek.com/joelonsoftware/default.asp?cmd=show&ixPost=164880&ixReplies=18">story</a&gt;?
    It would be very nice to hear from an MS insider about the plans with Lookout.

    Thank you and thanks for your blog, too!

    Oh… Who could know HTML would be screwed up? Sorry.

    I’m afraid that any commentary from me is pretty useless, since I have nothing to do with any of it. There are tens of thousands of employees here, and very few of us know anything useful about that acquisition.
