Hi There

 

A few of my contacts have informed me that they have received emails from me which are requesting payments of invoices and putting links (which arent mine) to a website. The original emails sent do not appear in my sent emails box.

 

I have attached the content of one of these emails below... (my email address is the gas-iow@hotmail.co.uk - I use the outlook connector for MS Outlook to connect my hotmail account), after this email is another message received with different information to another of my contacts.

 

Also on an unrelated matter, could anyone tell me how to remove /O=FIRST ORGANIZATION/OU=EXCHANGE ADMINISTRATIVE GROUP(FYDIBOHF23SPDLT)/CN=RECIPIENTS/CN=00064000C92B5FAB   from my sent emails (this comes up in the From line instead of my email address)

 

From: gas-iow@hotmail.co.uk <ylee@thisisalpha.com>
Date: 14 August 2017 at 11:17
Subject: Invoice number 165001 Notification
To: pam883155@gmail.com

You have posted the same topic here which I just moved to a more appropriate forum so you can get assistance.

Please do not start new threads or duplicate topics as this causes confusion and makes it more difficult to get the help you need to resolve your issues when asking for and receiving assistance elsewhere. Further, it necessitates staff spending time with housecleaning to remove or close those duplicate postings...time which could have been provided to others needing assistance.

To avoid confusion this thread is closed.
