    unwanted links showing in email OL 2016


    When I am looking at email in outlook 2016, moving my mouse over a selection it will show the link. i.e. when I place my mouse cursor over "get coupon" the link shows. Sometimes this hides the button to select. Is there a setting to turn this off?

    :)

  2. How to Create "Rules" in "Mail" (Live Mail) (image 1) - Not in Outlook Mail (image 2)

    > Outlook.com and Outlook 2016 - are they same/different?

    And don't forget the good ol' Outlook Express. Outlook.com is the old
    Hotmail, basically a webmail like Gmail or Yahoo. Outlook 2016 is a part of
    MS Office Outlook. That is an email client, but it is not freeware.

    I assume the following message purporting to be from the "Microsoft account team" is spam and have not clicked on the link. Any comment, please? {Apparently, my previous attempt to post did not include the following message - apologies}
