    In post #8; this caught my attention:

    "On 3/24/2018 you requested that your security info be replaced."


    I remember when I changed some of my security information, Microsoft locked me out of my own account for thirty days. Their explanation was that it was to discourage hackers and spammers. I was still able to access my email; however, I couldn't use or modify the account until the thirty days had elapsed.


    If you requested that your security information be updated, then this explains a few things. If you didn't, then you should start taking steps to further investigate why you are receiving malicious requests.

    That to me looks like a genuine MS link. It’s a secure site & is a microsoft.com link, it doesn’t ask for my account details - the email is already entered & asks me to approve the connection via my MS authenticator app, if it was fake it would probably link to microfost.com.
    If you did ask for your security info changing to email then that’s it but if not then you should cancel the request &/or contact Microsoft immediately.

    Thanks guys,,,,,I took the bull by the horns and clicked on it and it does seem that its because I have changed computers and somehow changed it myself.
    I will just have to wait a month.
    This is what I got when I clicked it,,still cannot understand their misspelling though.

    You can't access this site right now
    This site requires a security code to sign in. When your security info updates on 5/18/2018 you will be able to access this site. You can still access sites such as Outlook and Skype that don't require a security code.
    If you didn't request this, let us know.
    If you'd like to keep your current security info, you can cancel this request.
    Well blow me I just got a notification that the wait is over and I can access it all again,,must be because I clicked it.
    Thanks again all.
