One of my customer and several others, have subscribed to RSS Feeds with Outlook 2007. It was working fine and all of a sudden it showing the error mark in the status bar.
For example, whenever we make a Send/Receive, we get error mark in the status bar saying that “Task ‘RSS Feeds’ reported error (0x8C5C0008) : Synchronization to RSS Feed: […] has failed. Outlook cannot download the RSS content from […] because of a problem connecting to the server.”
Here there might be lot of parameters may play here.
You can try these below for workarounds.
1) Workaround # 1:
2) Workaround # 2:
For users to have a good offline experience, Outlook displays a message explaining the problem instead of simply returning the standard "Page not found" error when it determines that a folder home page is being loaded.
When users are offline, there are two requirements for Outlook to display the explanatory message instead of a standard error:
· A string must be included at the end of the title on the page used for the folder home page.
· The folder must be created with a new Outlook folder type.
To meet the first requirement, you add the following string to the end of the title of the custom RSS home page you create: (Outlook Homepage). The string and anything after that string is not displayed in the title of the page. When a user is offline, the explanatory message is displayed. When a user is online, the folder home page is displayed with the string removed so users do not see the string in the title.
The second requirement—a new Outlook folder type—ensures that the explanatory message for the RSS folder home page is not displayed for other folder home pages when users are offline. The standard Outlook folder type is IPM.Folder. The new folder type for RSS folders is IPM.Folder.OutlookHomepage
