Where is the Feeds log?

    Folks,

    I listen to about 30 radio podcasts per week. I am subscribed to all of
    these RSS feeds, and when I refresh the list, the new feeds are highlighted
    in bold. Clearly, Internet Explorer keeps a log somewhere of what feeds
    have been read, and when I refresh the list, it compares the current feeds
    against previously read ones so it can figure out which are unread. Well, I
    suppose it works something like that.

    I'm writing a little application that needs to detect the unread feeds, and
    download them automatically.

    Any suggestions on how to detect unread feeds programatically? Does anybody
    know where the log file is?

    Thanks,

    MikeC

    Then you should probably be posting in the MSDN forum for IE Web Development
    instead of here.

    According to the Help. E.g. right-click Properties on a feed, About
    feeds

    Q: Can other programs display my subsubscribed feeds?
    A: Yes, Internet Explorer provides the Common Feed List to other
    programs.

    So searching MSDN Library for "Common Feed List" would probably be what I
    would do first.

    If that doesn't expose the implementation I would resort to tracing its use
    (or WLMail's use of feeds) with ProcMon.
