Automatically Fetch Articles For Subscribed RSS Feeds In Mozilla Thunderbird

Mozilla Thunderbird has a useful built-in RSS reader. By default, for each of the added feed subscriptions, it won’t check or get new messages when Thunderbird is launched.

So here is how to configure Thunderbird RSS reader to automatically check for and retrieve articles for any of the subscribed RSS feeds as soon as it is launched :

Browse to the feed subscription which needs to be automatically updated. Right click on it and select “Settings”.

Under the “Server Settings” section, enable the option “Check for new articles at startup”.

All done.

From now on, all the messages will be automatically fetched for this RSS feed subscription.

Oh and speaking of RSS feeds, do subscribe to ours here. 🙂

Happy reading.
