Outlook.com is deleting mail at random Tags: websites, e-mail.
Just a heads up warning for everyone: over the past week I've noticed that Outlook.com is randomly but consistently not delivering certain e-mail. It may or may not affect you, I'm not sure what triggers the error.
As you may have read before
I am using a somewhat odd way of handling email and email addresses. So far it has always worked fine and the only spam I get is legacy stuff that is not using my new system
. So I can really recommend this, plus it sparks interesting conversations at times.
So what happens is this:
Determine how spammers got your address Tags: spam, e-mail.
I saw someone use a very smart way of managing e-mail. The only requirement is having a domain exclusively to yourself.
Say I want to sign up at example.com and I need a valid e-mail address. What I do is sign up with email@example.com. If I some day receive spam, I can see the recipient is firstname.lastname@example.org and I know that example.com has either shared my e-mail address with 3rd parties or made it public some way.
Even better, I can block any e-mail addressed to email@example.com!
"Is this your photo"-like scams Tags: e-mail, spam.
I never get how people can be so stupid to click on them. After the first at least, they are obvious: e-mails trying to make you click on some link, either because there is a comment on your profile, or some remarkable photo of you.
There are generally two types of e-mails. The first is an English e-mail from a Dutch person to whom you never spoke in English at all. The second is a Dutch e-mail with sentence constructions so bad that you would think they hired a typewriting chimp from a Dutch zoo.
