Re: Microsoft Outlook Scam!

 

Ron,

        Please stop saying this is a scam.  It has been officially announced on Microsoft's own support sites.  See this one on support.office.com

Re: [TechTalk] Alert Windows Live Mail users, scam email warning

 

Ron,

          It is not false.  It is posted on Microsoft's own website and is being heavily discussed in the tech press.

          It doesn't get more official than an announcement on support.office.com.

          I also think this is going to backfire on Microsoft and they'll lose a lot of e-mail users.

Microsoft Outlook Scam!

Ron Canazzi
 

Hi Group,


As concerns the Outlook.com issue: I just talked to the disability line at Microsoft (1-800-936-5900) and this Outlook business is definitely a scam.  There is already a case number 133-830-4258 open and being investigated.


If you get any further e-mails or web page references, forward such e-mails to the 2 following addresses:

abuse@...

abuse@...


Hopefully, this will resolve the controversy!

I didn't keep the e-mail being discussed.  Just because the transition is genuine, that doesn't mean the e-mail is.  I don't know.  But I do know that it is advised against following links in e-mails unless you know they are safe.  I believe Ron said he saw some sort of misspelling in the message.  That should make people very suspicious about whether the message is legitimate.  If you want to respond to the genuine issue, use Microsoft links from the actual Microsoft site.  Follow safety procedures and don't take chances, wherever an e-mail appears to come from.

It's not a spam/phishing email, take a look at this https://blogs.office.com/2016/05/05/using-windows-live-mail-2012-with-outlook-com-time-to-update-your-email-application/

This is real, and...the change will happen, no matter what. To be honest I felt kind of surprised by this, having used WLM for so long.

Hi, Brian,

Thanks very much for the explanation. I stand corrected. I don't see why microsoft wants to improve the outlook.com when it doesn't need it. Like the old saying goes, if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Thanks again for the correction.

Rosemarie

Rosemarie,

We're in agreement, but on flip sides of the same coin. I don't think that there is any reason to change the "outlook.com infrastructure" except to force users to use another of Microsoft's proprietary creations. It's not WLM that needs updating it's that outlook.com doesn't need the "improvements" they're doing.

Microsoft really doesn't learn from its past mistakes along these lines. It's one thing to roll things out, and Windows 10 is one of those things, with policies firmly in place that users will either love or hate, but can make a decision knowing what those are. To take something like e-mail, which has been about as stable as it can get as far as infrastructure goes, and muck with it, really doesn't make sense. I suspect they'll lose a lot of their e-mail users over this, as people tend to get a lot more attached to their e-mail client programs than they are to their actual e-mail providers.

Hi Group,
 
If any of you are Windows Live Mail users, there is a possibility that you may receive an email with a subject line something like:
 
“Outlook: Alert Windows Live Mail Users”
 
This email will contain the version of your WLM installation and a message saying that outlook.com is about to einitiate some changes that will make the service much better for it’s users. But, as a result of these changes, Windows Live Mail will no longer be able to sync with outlook.com. You will be offered some alternatives for your email including:
Using the Mail app in Windows 8.1 or 10.
Using the outlook.com website.
Or, Downloading and installing a free one year subscription to Office 365 Personal, which contains Outlook 2016.
I did have Office 365 Personal for awhile, and it did not include Outlook as I remember. The other thing about this email, is that it was sent from the email address: email2@..., which just looks suspicious to me, it should be from either Windows or Outlook.com. I called Microsoft support to have them check this email out, and sure enough, they came back saying that there is no such email address associated with Microsoft in any way, and that the links within the email are not linked to a Microsoft site. “This is definitely a scam email”.
 
Should you receive an email of this sort, please call Microsoft Accessibility Support before deleting it. They took a copy of the email plus an image of the actual links that were in the message which were labeled in a misleading manner.

Re: Fw: Action required for users of Windows Live Mail 2012

 

I agree to a certain extent. I've been using WLM2012 for a long time and don't feel like changing, though Thunderbird is a good alternative. Even if the Outlook account is upgraded and compatability may break, Mozilla is sure to fix it in the next release once the issue has been discovered.

I have to stick to Outlook.com because it is tied to my Office 365 subscription and the user account on my Surface 3, though I have Gmail for the purpose of using Google Docks, especially in class when doing group work online.


Re: Fw: Action required for users of Windows Live Mail 2012

Action required for users of Windows Live Mail 2012


Dear User,

Earlier this year we introduced a new Outl‍ook‍.‍com that will help you collaborate with others, focus on what matters, and get more done. The new Outlo‍ok‍.‍com delivers an exciting set of new experiences across web, phone, and desktop, and we’re eager for you to start using it.

It appears that you are currently using Windows Live Mail 2012 to connect to your Out‍look‍.‍com account. Windows Live Mail 2012 does not support the synchronization technologies used by the new Outl‍ook‍.‍com. When account upgrades begin at the end of June, you will no longer be able to receive email sent to your Out‍look‍.‍com account in Windows Live Mail 2012. Rest assured, you can always access your email by logging into Out‍look‍.‍com from any web browser, and you will continue to have access to all your data that is currently in Windows Live Mail 2012.

If you currently use Windows Live Mail 2012, we recommend that you switch to the Mail app in Windows to‍day. The Mail app is built in to Windows 8/8.1 and Windows 10, and has a more modern design. To begin using it, simply launch the app and add your Out‍look‍.‍com account.

If you are using Windows 7, you can upgrade to a newer version of Windows to enjoy the Mail app and the other benefits. If you do not wish to upgrade, you can access your account via a web browser, or, you can take advantage of a free one-year subscription of Office 365 Personal, and use Outl‍ook 2016 to connect to your account.* This Off‍ice 365 subscription also includes other productivity applications such as Word, PowerPoint and Excel. It works on Windows 7, Windows 8/8.1, and Windows 10.

Please take action before Ju‍ne 30th, 2016, which is when we’ll begin upgrading accounts that currently use Windows Live Mail 2012. If you have more questions, please find answers to common FAQs in this help article, or you can contact Microsoft support.

We recognize that changes like this can be difficult, and apologize for any inconvenience this causes you. We hope that you’ll enjoy the benefits of moving to the new Outl‍ook‍.‍com.

Sincerely,
Outl‍ook‍.‍com team

Hi Gene,

 

When replying, the issue does not exist.  I don't see any odd characters in the place of spaces.  I am sure it is something to do with just how Thunderbird is rendering his original messages.  I have seen this a few times with some individuals located in foreign countries, so maybe it could be something to do with a font type.

Hi Rosemarie,

I hear that oddity with his messages too.  What is happening is that the spaces between words are some sort of unrecognizable character--unrecognizable to screen readers and certain synthesizers I would guess.  I think it may be because he is sending his messages from an IPhone or other IOS device.  It is interpreting his spaces between words as some sort of character.

If you currently use Windows Live Mail 2012, we recommend that you switch to the Mail app in Windows to‍day. The Mail app is built in to Windows 8/8.1 and Windows 10, and has a more modern design. To begin using it, simply launch the app and add your Out‍look‍.‍com account.
If you are using Windows 7, you can upgrade to a newer version of Windows to enjoy the Mail app and the other benefits. If you do not wish to upgrade, you can access your account via a web browser, or, you can take advantage of a free one-year subscription of Office 365 Personal, and use Outl‍ook 2016 to connect to your account.* This Off‍ice 365 subscription also includes other productivity applications such as Word, PowerPoint and Excel. It works on Windows 7, Windows 8/8.1, and Windows 10.
Please take action before Ju‍ne 30th, 2016, which is when we’ll begin upgrading accounts that currently use Windows Live Mail 2012. If you have more questions, please find answers to common FAQs in this help article, or you can contact Microsoft support.
We recognize that changes like this can be difficult, and apologize for any inconvenience this causes you. We hope that you’ll enjoy the benefits of moving to the new Outl‍ook‍.‍com.

Re: very good news about audio conversion soft ware

It's hard to know what the problem is.  It may be that there is some minor problem that causes something to be placed incorrectly in messages now and then.  But what the problem may be or what the cause is, I have no idea. 
 
At first, I thought it was an encoding problem but I don't think the space symbol or whatever indicates a space has encoding conflicts.  I suspect that something incorrect is being placed in messages now and then for some unknown reason.

Hi guys,
David Moore here. This is strange that my messages sound like there is some symbol in them, because I am using Windows Live Mail on a laptop with win10. How does this message sound?

Hi Gene,

 

When replying, the issue does not exist.  I don't see any odd characters in the place of spaces.  I am sure it is something to do with just how Thunderbird is rendering his original messages.  I have seen this a few times with some individuals located in foreign countries, so maybe it could be something to do with a font type.

I should alter what I said.  I should say that, in reading the messages quoted under yours, I didn't have any problems reading the first two or three.  I didn't read further.  According to Ron's message, others appear to have problems reading one of these messages in their original form.  Unless the problem is solved, what happens if you issue the reply command and try to read the message?

Hi Rosemarie,

I hear that oddity with his messages too.  What is happening is that the spaces between words are some sort of unrecognizable character--unrecognizable to screen readers and certain synthesizers I would guess.  I think it may be because he is sending his messages from an IPhone or other IOS device.  It is interpreting his spaces between words as some sort of character.

    There is a program called unchecky that will allow you to install any software without any adds, or any unwanted software getting downloaded with what you want. Free Make might download and install better if you install the unchecky software. Just do a Google search for unchecky. Take care.

    How do you issue that command? Do you put it after the extension or before it?

      freemake does have opencandy in it though you will have to do a /nocandy on the installer so it does not load with adds.

         Once the Windows media player opens pressed the Control plus 3 to change it to suggestion view panel. Then, right-click and arrow down to select the More Option. Tab till you reach tab panel that says Rip Music. then, select the preferred settings or conversion to rip your music into different format like mp3, wma, and so on.

             Hum, if it's for converting into mp3 or wma, windows media player does it, no need for anything else... and having never used iTunes, i have no idea of what  it can or can't do,  I thought it was mainly for buying music from apple.
