Ok, So I get an email notification from Feedblitz to tell me of new posts in Geekzone so I check my email and then if I click on one of the links.... nothing happens!
For example, I just clicked on>>> Microsoft Release Private Folder 1.0 which was sent to me by Feedblitz and nothing happened. Why??? I'd like to be able to password protect some of my files and this sounded like what I need. I googled it and didnt come up with anything useful.
Any help appreciated :)

It is probably a settings on your e-mail program. For example Outlook has an option to disable links from e-mails, which is a way to prevent users clicking on phishing scams. This happens sometimes for some e-mails, and all the times for any e-mails in the Junk E-mail folder (if you have the Junk E-mail filtering activated).

I receive our own Feedblitz emails and it works fine, from Outlook 2003.

The stories on Feedblitz are usually in our frontpage, so if you can't click through the e-mail, just look in our frontpage and you will see it.

Thanks for that, I found the link and went there but the d/l for Private Folder is nowhere to be found, I just kept going round in circles when I got to the microsoft site (made me dizzy :) J/K)

The link in the article goes directly to the download page. The download button is on the right-side of that page.

Note that the download is only available after the Microsoft validates your Windows installation. You may need to use Internet Explorer and accept the validation.
