Why can't Outlook 2010 consume RSS output?

I am setting up GeoEvent Processor for a customer and experimenting with various output/alerting mechanisms.  One thing they are interested in is having the output RSS feed be consumed in Outlook 2010 so users know when a GeoFence criteria has been met (as opposed to sending emails, etc.).

However, when I try to add the RSS endpoint to Outlook, I always get an error.  e.g.  Is there anyway we can get this to better integrate with Outlook?  Is the self-signed certificate possibly causing problems?

Thanks for any insight.
