Can RSS/XML syndication be enabled for the forums?

Would it be possible to enable RSS/XML syndication for the Forums? I relied on emails to monitor and participate in the list. I had a relatively lowly 500 posts but I did read just about everything in my subscribed groups and posted when I could value.

I will struggle to participate at the same level with the new format. Being able to use an RSS reader to monitor the list would be great.

It seems like vBulletin has syndication turned off by default. I tried these two urls as describe in the vBulletin manual:

http://www.jdelist.com/vb4/external.php or http://www.jdelist.com/vb4/external.php?type=RSS2

They both returned a blank HTML page. I assume that means the feature is turned off.

I really liked getting an email for every post to my subscribed forum. Is there anyway to turn on that option? I added the RSS feed, but it was easier to stay involved on my cell phone via email. This was a great feature and really miss it.

I agree. Used to keep up to date with those emails. The new posts link is not as useful. I also kept a number of the post emails that provided advice and ideas that I use. I just saw another post with a great idea, but will have to copy and past the detail in a word doc or text file or send an email to myself.
