Hi
Is there any way for a RSS publisher to limit the number of times, in the RSS XML itself, feed aggregators or certain email programs like Outlook check for updated RSS content?

No, there really isn't. It's something controlled solely by the feed readers and agregators.

Hi
If the feed publisher cannot limit the frequency of a client email checking for feed updates, then what does the below paragraph in an article published by Microsoft refer to?

http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook-help/change-settings-for-rss-feeds-HA001229947.aspx?CTT=3


"The delivery mechanism for RSS content is known as an RSS Feed. When you subscribe to an RSS Feed, Outlook periodically checks the RSS publisher's server for updated postings. How frequently this check occurs is determined by one of two settings.

RSS publishers can specify the maximum frequency at which a check for new postings should occur. RSS publishers set these limits to help manage the demand on their server. For example, an RSS Feed might have a maximum polling frequency of 60 minutes. Some publishers enforce these limits strictly."
