Disappointed !
« on: October 12, 2013, 03:53:02 PM »
About 10 days ago, I created a live.com account, so that I can use Outlook as a back up email service, should the need arise.
I have already used it a couple of times, just to make sure it works OK.
During this same period, I have lost count of how many emails I have received from "The SkyDrive Team", "SkyDrive", "Outlook.com Team" and the list goes on and on !
Talk about spamming.... :smash:
Very disappointing.

That is just the "welcome" bit so new users will know about the additional features.  You'll only receive occasional emails in the future.  For example, there was an email from the Outlook.com Team in August when there was a change to the messaging history featureā€.

Well, yesterday and today, I received "advert" emails from Microsoft about Windows 8.1
I have now developed a new strategy....I am reporting all of them as "Junk"...... :hysterical:
