    Default RSS feeds auto update?

    We have a RSS feed set up for company news, and every user has a feed as a folder on their account that reads it. Users have to click Load feed to load new messages. Is there a way to make it auto update, say every day at midnight?

    I don't know if there's a way to do that with the CLI or not. There is a bug (feature request) however, for additional functionality in the RSS feeds.

    Bug 15892 - more featureful RSS support

    Look like there is a fix to the bug already. Unfortunately, I know nothing about how to implement it. Can someone direct me to the right procedure?

    Thanks,

    I'm working on our own script to do something along these lines here, but I'm taking a different tack. Instead of every user subscribing to the feed and updating it all the time, we created a single account (we called it "shares"). We create the RSS folder in that account, and then just make it a shared folder to all the other accounts in the system. Then we can update the feed on a set time schedule on the "shares" account...and all users get the updated feed automatically.

    The downside is that they can't mark messages as read or delete messages.

    Code:
    zmmailbox -z -m ACCOUNT syncFolder /FolderName
    That will refresh an RSS feed from the command line.

    I just wanted to say that I used your "trick" (thanks for the tip) with zmmailbox and wrote a C# windows service connecting with ssh to my zimbraserver, autoupdating my feeds with a given interval (different for each feed.) Just in case someone have any use for it I've written a blogpost about it and uploaded the code + installer: Onkelborg's blog: Zimbra - Updatera feeds / Update Feeds
