    Old Email Account forcing periodic restart of MSFT apps


    I am running Win10 Pro 64 bit on a desktop Velocity PC and an older Surface tablet, and also have an old HP 8 tablet Win 10 Home tied to my MSFT account. I have a license for Office 2016 pro, am using OneDrive and also have a skype account.


    I am getting regular alerts on my PC that my security config has been changed and I need to restart my Windows apps. When I try to "fix" my MSFT account, for example in Office 2016, the log-in screen appears with an outdated/updated email address.


    That old email address doesn't show up anywhere in my account configurations across all devices and all applications, and is also not recognized as an active MSFT account and it's starting to drive me crazy.


    Where can it still lurk? How do I stop this annoyance?


    Thanks! Adi

    :)

    Unauthorized Emails from my account?

    It is more than likely that your email account was hacked, either by a virus sniffing your password, or just simply hacked.

    Either way, change your password on your email account. Unfortunately the damage by already be done. They already have your contact list and your email address associated with that contact list. There is nothing stopping them from sending out emails using their own SMTP servers to everyone on your contact list and claiming the emails are from your email address. They don't actually have to have access to your yahoo account or even any yahoo server to send emails to people that come from your address.

    Best Multi-User Email App?

    Hello. I am looking for an email app that will support 2 users, each with 2 different email accounts (one gmail and one outlook account each). Ideally they would like to use a single email program for both of them but would like separate inboxes for each person.

    So, ideally:
    • One email program.
    • Two inboxes, with each inbox collecting email from a unique gmail account and a unique outlook account.

    Will be interested in any suggestions.

    New emails link to old emails and they all show in the inbox

    Hi Carlson,

    Thank you for being part of Windows 10.

    Before we proceed, I need more information to help you better.

    • How many user account you have configured in the Windows Mail app?
    • What do you mean by “New emails link to old emails”?
    If you have configured more than one user account in the Windows Mail app then, I would suggest you to switch the user accounts and check the emails in the inbox.

    Follow the below steps to switch the user accounts in the Windows Mail app:

    • Open the Mail app.
    • Under the Accounts select one user account and check the
      Inbox
      under Folders.
    If the issue still persist then, I would recommend you to delete and reconfigure the account.

    Hope the above information helps. Reply with necessary information and the result to help you further.

    Thank you.
