    Outlook 2010 desktop application email service Outlook.com


    Not about Windows 10 but about Outlook 2010 desktop application.
    My apologise if this is not the right board to post this but do not know where else to post about Outlook 2010 desktop application.
    Just received email from Microsoft informing me "In the next few weeks we’ll be making some updates that will impact your @outlook.com, @Hotmail, @Live or @msn email account. Those changes will prevent your email from getting delivered to the Outlook desktop application that you use. When you notice that you stop receiving messages, simply follow these two steps:"
    Remove your email account from your Outlook 2010 desktop application
    Re-add your email account to your Outlook 2010 desktop application

    Hope this is a genuine message from Microsoft! Anyone else received this email?
    Is it genuine and how can I check it is?

    Yes, I received the same for all my outlook.com accounts - interesting that they have not included outlook 2013 or 2016 in the list. I was searching to see what others have found - and came across your post

    I'll probably chat online with MS

    Had a chat online, its a valid email , due to outlook.com migration to outlook preview, it only effects legacy apps - hence why outlook 2013 & 16 are not mentioned as they should be OK

    WLM will also be affected , as far as i could understand , All Legacy Applications will be affected
    But Win Mail app 10 will be OK

    Not sure about other apps , iphone etc

    Did they mention whether they're updating Outlook Hotmail Connector?

    No , i didn't ask , i had assumed as they email included outlook 2003 it was OK
    BUT further research has indicated that it will not work
    First look: Outlook.com on Office 365
    When your account is migrated, you'll need to remove the account from Outlook and add it back to your profile as an Exchange account. Auto-account setup will correctly configure it. The Outlook Connector will not work once the account is migrated.

    Reassuring to know that others have received the same email and especially you, etaf, who has taken the trouble to contact Microsoft for confirmation. One never knows when an email is genuine even if the email header confirms it was sent from Microsoft servers. Thank you.

    Yes, and with links in the email to unknown malicious websites - so i'm always cautious as i can be , seen too many people getting virus and malware that way - Also i know someone who had a PDF CV sent to them for a job application , and they were advertising for someone get the cryptovirus

    My son has not recieved the mail and on other tech forums , I moderate people have not seen the email - so it maybe a targeted approach only

    What desktop application are you using - Outlook 2010
    I'm using
    Outlook 2013 , Thunderbird and WLM on a test PC

    I got this email too. Quite interesing.

    I have 1x Outlook.com
    1x hotmail.co.uk
    1x gmail.com
    1x privately hosted email

    It's always the outlook.com and Hotmail that are slow, laggy and generally unsatisfactory when using an external cleint like Outlook or emClient. The other services are just fine.

    I hope and pray that the changes they are making will sort out the terrible performance issues of some (if not all) of the microsoft outlook.com/Hotmail/Live mail servers when trying to connect. The lagginess is infuriating. I work in IT support and for a number of my customers using outlook.com or Live.co.uk or Hotmail.com email addresses together with trying to sync then to a desktop mail program (like emClient and Outlook proper) this laginess and general slowness of the mail servers has caused them to move away to Gmail or another service.

    Come on Microsoft - sort your mail service out for goodness sake!!!!

    I'm using Outlook 2010 for 2 x Hotmail and 2 x Live accounts. All these accounts received the said email. I haven't had many issues with Outlook 2010 and get very few junk mail but as you say one has to be very careful today with thousand of malware appearing on the net every day! I only use another email account which I directly on the web page.

    Thanks for posting those two links.

    Good to see in the first link that Office Outlook will finally support outlook.com aliases too.
