Windows 7: Live Mail - MS Essentials - Not a Valid Feed!

Live Mail - MS Essentials - Not a Valid Feed!

Live Mail from Microsoft Essentials is very particular about which feeds it will and will not take.

More often than not I get the "http://feedxxxxxx: Is Not a Valid Feed" Error/Dialog box.

It seems very strange sometimes as it will accept & reject feeds from the same site, eBay for example.

Here is the last feed I tried that got rejected: ""

Any ideas?

Thanks :)

Maybe the links need to be posted in a forum first?
