a) You need to Add the Feed to IE first.
on IE 8 - you turn on web-slices gallery (attached screenshot)
Then browse to the feed
www.wordnik.com/word-of-the-day/feed

There is a yellow bar which states - subscribe to this feed.
Click that and add it to IE

IE7 guide here and help on the error message
"outlook cannot download the rss content from because of a problem connecting to the server"

IE8

After you set this up, then you use the RSS feed's in Outlook.

Apparently RSS feeds in outlook was configured to pull Feeds from Sharepoint portals.
I am setup right now with Outlook 2003, cant test the outlook end of it.
