There are two options for reading SolidWorks Forums content right within Microsoft Outlook, RSS and eMail notification.

 

RSS:

 

View all content via the following RSS feed https://forum.solidworks.com/community/feeds/allcontent. This feed can be used by any RSS compatible viewer.

- You can see the posts you have read and ones you have not (unread).

- Add to Outlook or any RSS capable reader. Note that Outlook 2007 and previous has some issues with RSS feeds.

 

 

Following what's important:

 

Use Follow this Place and mark the places within the Forums that are important to you.

You can follow, or un-follow, places within the Notifications area of any place.

e-mail Notifications:

 

Receive e-mail notification to define what is important to you (i.e., place post, tag, etc.).


- You can define, and modify, the email notications.

- Add to Outlook (see Create an Outlook rule below).
