Adding reddit RSS feeds to Outlook

Creating reddit RSS feeds is pretty straightforward. For example, subscribing to http://www.reddit.com/r/news/.rss will get you all threads in the news subreddit. However, attempting to add such a URL to Outlook’s RSS reader will result in the following error:

Outlook cannot process the RSS content from http://www.reddit.com/r/news/.rss. The link may not point to a valid RSS source.

Fortunately, the fix is simple – just get rid of the right-most slash (the one before .rss): http://www.reddit.com/r/news.rss.

Outlook will now accept the URL and your subscription will work as expected.
