malware – Microsoft Outlook “confirm your current password” scam?

🙂

I continue to have this pop-up preventing me from accessing my email (the first pop-up said in all lowercase “don’t lose access to your account!”). It seems unprofessional to be all lowercase, so I feel like I have a virus/malware (I scanned with Windows Defender… it says there were “no threats found”). Here are screenshots of what I have dealt with this morning (my laptop is extremely fast, and all of the sudden, it is really slow this morning with this email situation… I am concerned that if I restart the laptop, I won’t be able to log back into my computer… I am very concerned):

Press “Next”…

Then, I think I was wrong to have entered my password… after entering it, I received a verification email (sent to my backup Gmail account regarding my college Outlook email account) from “msonlineservicesteam@microsoftonline.com”… scam?

How do I get out of this? Any help is appreciated… 🙁

microsoft outlook – Which locale related settings changes double quotes into “«” as I type

Good morning,
I’m working on a Windows 10 computer with Belgian locale (French language), and constantly my double quotes seem to be replaced by “«” (opening) and corresponding closing characters. This just happened while I was typing a mail in MS-Outlook, but I believe it to be general. I searched in MS-Outlook help for “smart quotes” but there were no result, I believe it is a locale setting, but I don’t know which one. In top of that, in front of a question mark, an extra space is added too, which I don’t want.

Anybody knows where I can find those settings?

Thanks in advance

microsoft office 365 – Outlook Desktop search contacts To/Cc/Ccn fields during typing

Our company migrate from KerioConnect to Office 365 to better manage
the emails. Lots of people in the company have the same problem, can’t
search for contacts when creating a new email and typing in the “To”
field (Click on the “To” button correctly open the address book and
the contacts are shown). I have 10 contacts in my personal folder,
before the migration when I type the name of the person in the “To”
field a list with contacts appear, after the migration this doesn’t
happend. Typing the name in the box appear only the email that I have
alredy write to, but not the email saved in contacts.

This seems to be a problem only for some office installation. Here is
a list of the clients:

Do you have any idea on how to solve that?

email – Export a single mail folder to an archive file in Outlook 2016 and “mount” that back later?

In Outlook 2016, I have a folder labeled “2020” with my mails from that year, and want to export it to a single file. I then wish to move that file around (to an external archive HDD or wherever). If, eventually, I ever need one of those mails, I would like to open the file with Outlook, and find that single file – I most definitely do not, in that case, wish to import the whole archive back into my online account.

In Outlook for Windows, one can create a .pst file which acts like a local account – you can “mount” it, move mails into and out of it, but also close it and then work with the .pst file like with anything else.

In Outlook 2016 for Mac, there is an Export and Import functionality which works on .olm files. But it seems very limited: during exporting, you can pick categories of mails, but not, say, a single mail folder. During importing, the .olm file is not “mounted”, but simply imported, adding the content of the .olm to your regular mail account.

Is there a way to achieve what I need in Outlook 2016, or is the functionality simply not there? Do you know some kind of workaround? If it matters, the account is provided by an Exchange server.

active directory – Exchange Migration without outlook configuration

I am working on migrating some users from Exchange1 and Domain1 users to Exchange2 and Domain2.

I am able to migrate their accounts from Domain1 to Domain2 with their current password. No issues.

I am able to migrate their mailbox from Exchange1 to Exchange2 while linking to their new Exchange2 mailbox.

I can now login to the new Exchange2 mailbox by OWA using Domain2user and their existing password everything is there no problem.

I then update the autodiscover in my dns to point to Exchange2.

My problem is none of the Outlook clients connect at this point. When opening Outlook all I get is “Disconnected” at the lower right, no prompt to enter a password, nothing. If I remove the account from Outlook and configure it again it works properly.

Is there something I can do to save our team of reconfiguring 300 plus Outlook clients?

Ask me for any other details or if is unclear what I asked.

How can I efficiently check if a given email address is included in a distribution list in Microsoft Outlook OWA?

From what I can see, clicking on the distribution list in Microsoft Outlook OWA doesn’t give any efficient way to check if a given email address is included in a distribution list, since would have to go through the list of email addresses included in a distribution list (which is inconvenient if the distribution list contains many email addresses):
