Can you push an HTTPS RSS feed to Outlook via Group Policy?

We are trying to add an HTTPS RSS feed to all our Outlook clients via Group Policy but it doesn't seem to work - it never shows up even with a gpupdate /force and a Send/Receive in Outlook.

We are able to successfully add an HTTP RSS feed following this link:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc179173%28v=office.12%29.aspx

But the procedure above doesn't work with our HTTPS RSS feed.  I think it has something to do with the Group Policy replacing "http://" with "feed://" in the URL but there doesn't seem to be an equivalent replacement for "https://".  We've even tried "feeds://" but it doesn't work.

Is this possible with Group Policy?

Never mind.  "feed://" worked with an HTTPS RSS feed - it just took a while (more than 10 minutes) for it to actually show up in Outlook even after doing gpupdate /force.
