    I am having problems adding any news feeds from the internet. The error message I get is:

    An error occured.

    Error message: XML not found!
    Error source: -

    Tip: Please don't forget the "http://" in the URL.

    The URL is formed correctly though when I select edit to double check it.

    I am using known sites too, just copying the rss url as a shortcut and adding as a favourite to a directory

    What am I doing wrong?!!!

      I'm sorted!

      I was putting the wrong details in for the proxy server and port number!

      I have upgraded to 1.2 as well.

      many thanks for your help

      Could it be that you are using an old version of RSSOwl? Please check that in Help > About. The latest version is 1.2.

      Do you use a proxy? This has to be setup in preferences.

      Thanks Ben

      i am using a v.old verison- 0.81b- but I think you could be onto a winner with the proxy server- my company enforces an automatic proxy server configuration scirpt for LAN settings:

      http://tproxy:8001/proxy.pac

      I have tried putting this into the proxy host, and then put 8001 as the port- no joy!

      Any thoughts?

        You should really first update to RSSOwl 1.2. Then please try again entering your proxy credentials into preferences. You might need to add username and password as well.
