Former RSS "Health Freedom Alliance" Feed No Longer Active

Bug Description

I use an Apple/Mac desktop OS version 10.6.8, along with my native Apple email client ("Mail").

I used to receive nearly daily RSS feed emails from Health Freedom Alliance (HFA), but it stopped working about a month ago. Does this problem have anything to do with your recent server migration? I receive an error message "The requested URL was not found on this server," when I click on the Health Freedom Alliance RSS button within my native email client.

I want to start receiving automated RSS HFA emails again, since I believe the HFA is a very good source of current health news and information.

Can you help me with this problem?

Thank you,
Kevin

Since it seems likely to me that this is a local configuration problem, rather than a bug in Ubuntu, I'm marking this bug as Incomplete.
In your case not even local to your system but to the server admins. We have no idea how they have set up their servers and can't control/check on that.

If anything you'd need to provide the URL where you get that RSS from.
But even then that would not be a bug in a Ubuntu package, but a job of the site admin to fix it up.

If indeed this is a local configuration problem, you can find pointers to get help for this sort of problem here: http://www.ubuntu.com/support/community

Or if you believe that this is really a bug, then you may find it helpful to read "How to report bugs effectively" http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/bugs.html. We'd be grateful if you would then provide a more complete description of the problem, explain why you believe this is a bug in Ubuntu rather than a problem specific to your system, and then change the bug status back to New.

Changed in apache2 (Ubuntu):
status: New → Incomplete

Christian,

My RSS feed for Freedom Health Alliance resumed as normal on its own about a month ago, and I'm now receiving the emails again. Thanks for looking into this.
