My outlook 2010 does not receive rss content anymore (it was up until last week).

The only thing I did in my computer is to uninstall a private VPN.

Thanks for your help!

Firewall issues most likely.  Try a repair of Outlook.  There are better RSS feed programs out there, then what Outlook does.  See http://www.sevenforums.com/microsoft-office/238289-outlook-2010-rss-feeds-suddonly-no-longer-updating.html regarding your issue.  Also, it may have been using the VPN before, to pull the feeds.  Now that you are not using that VPN, it does not know what to do.

Mine quit also.  Clicking on the feed in the website was no help.  Then I manually re-added them and all is well. In outlook....

Manually enter a new RSS Feed subscription

To manually enter an RSS Feed subscription, you are required to enter the Web address.

  1. Click the File tab.
  2. Click Account Settings, and then click Account Settings.
  3. On the RSS Feeds tab, click New.
  4. In the New RSS Feed dialog box, type the URL of the RSS Feed. For example, http://www.example.com/feed/main.xml.

 Tip    In most Web browsers, on a Web page, you can right-click the ZA010106055.gif RSS icon, and then copy the shortcut to the Clipboard. Press CTRL+V to paste the information from the Clipboard into the RSS Feed location box.

  1. Click Add.
  2. Click OK.

3. Choose “Import RSS Feeds from the Common Feed List” and click Next.

4. HCheck the feed you just added and click Next.
