"Q. Will customers be able to sign up for email or RSS
notification about new security advisories?
A.
The pilot offering is an opportunity to gather feedback on the
security advisories and therefore we will be making the advisories
available by using our email Microsoft Security Notification
Service: Comprehensive Edition. However we will not immediately
have an RSS notification available. As we continue to incorporate
that feedback into this offering, we will examine making additional
options available. To receive automatic e-mail notifications
whenever a security advisory is issued or updated, subscribe to the
Microsoft Security Notification Service: Comprehensive Edition."

I've just subscribed successfully as an individual.

I think you may have jumped to a conclusion.

I think I already said that yesterday, twice. Once in this thread and I
started a new thread to announce it.

I quote from both posts:

"The Security Advisories are going to anyone that signs up for it, so I
WAS WRONG!"

My ISP's systems had problems earlier in the week. Your Tuesday posts
have only just shown up on my ISP's news server and email is arriving
out of order as well...
