RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is a web feed format that is used to publish blog entries and news headlines in a standard format. RSS feeds can be subscribed to and read using an RSS reader, which checks the subscribed feeds regularly for newly published items. This allows you to check for new content on many different websites in one, convenient location.

You can read your favorite websites’ RSS feeds using Zimbra’s built-in RSS reader. RSS feeds can be subscribed to on individual computers, but setting up RSS feeds in Zimbra allows you to access these feeds from any computer with Internet access.

Each RSS feed is set up as a folder in Zimbra, which contains all of that feed’s stories. The RSS folder will show up inline with the rest of the user’s folders and will be indicated by an RSS icon, rather than a folder.
