Remove an RSS Feed that keeps reappearing in Outlook 2013

When you use Windows Internet Explorer 7 or later and Outlook, you can view and maintain the same RSS Feeds subscriptions list in either program. You do so by sharing one RSS Feeds subscription list via the Common Feed List in Microsoft Windows.

When you add an RSS Feed to any program that uses the Common Feed List, that RSS Feed is available in all programs automatically. There are several feeds that are included with Windows Internet Explorer. When the Common Feed List is synchronized with Outlook, these RSS Feeds also appear in Outlook.

Why does an RSS Feed that I delete in Outlook keep reappearing?

Deleting an RSS Feed in Outlook doesn’t remove the RSS Feed from the Common Feed List. If Common Feed List synchronization is turned on, an RSS Feed deleted in Outlook reappears if it remains on the Common Feed List.

To remove an RSS Feed that reappears after you delete it in Outlook — you must do one of the following:

  • Keep the RSS Feed only in Windows Internet Explorer    Turn off synchronization with the Common Feed List in Windows, and then unsubscribe from the RSS Feed in Outlook.

  • Remove the RSS Feed in both Outlook and Windows Internet Explorer    Delete the RSS Feed in both Outlook and Windows Internet Explorer.

  1. Click the File tab.

  2. Click Options.

  3. Click Advanced.

  4. Under RSS Feeds, clear the Synchronize RSS Feeds to the Common Feed List (CFL) in Windows check box.
