NortonInternetSecurity catches: personal eMail address being sent to Hotmail

Q: NortonInternetSecurity catches: personal eMail address being sent to Hotmail

This is odd - but am wondering why ...
When I am using Hotmail - NortonInternetSecurity alerts me to the fact that my "personal" (ISP) email address is being sent to Hotmail. I get tired of blocking it and change my application to Hotmail in InternetExplorer (which is a drag if I want to activate eMail elsewhere ... changing back and forth)

Does anyone know why this happens?
Many thanks

Preferred Solution: NortonInternetSecurity catches: personal eMail address being sent to Hotmail

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: NortonInternetSecurity catches: personal eMail address being sent to Hotmail

Norton's internet security setting alerts you when you are about to send pre selected personal information. If you are getting a warning when going into hotmail I am assuming that your hotmail address and your isp address have a common name in them (yours maybe). It sounds as you have set up internet security with your e-mail address, to warn you when you type it anywhere, and you are typing a similar thing to get into your hotmail account so it throws up a warning. It should only recognise exactly what you've asked it to recognise. If you have asked it to recognise your complete e-mail address (ie you typed the full address in the security settings) then I don't understand.
You can set it to recognise bits of your address though.
So if your name is mugsy and your isp e-mail address is [email protected], you can set it to warn you everytime you are about to send "mugsy" somewhere.
When you go to hotmail you will maybe then type [email protected]. This will throw up a warning that you are about to send your e-mail [email protected] address to hotmail.
It depends what you have set it up as, but something will be common to the 2 addresses. What is it?

Is there some way of moving all messages from my hotmail account to another email address? So when I emails are sent to my hotmail address they are then sent to my other email address, (then deleted from hotmail).
Is there a program that can sit on the desktop that is always checking hotmail, and when a email is recieved it is then sent to another email address? (this address is not a hotmail address).

Any possibilities??

A:Make all email that is recieved from my hotmail account go to another email address.

if you have outlook express linked to your hotmail account you can run a rule on the mail - not sure if it works on webmail cia outlook/outlook express
but the rume to forward certainly works

Try logging into your account from the hotmail website and make sure your not automatically forwarding anything, change your password to something complex, and even reinstall Thunderbird and remove all user settings, then reinstall.

A:how do i find in a recieved email in hotmail the IP address

Hi. probably these will help you:
Webmailers often log the IP address of the machine from which the email was posted via a browser using a "Received:" line such as the above. Look for "via HTTP" or "with HTTP" in usually the last "Received:" line. Alternatively look for a "X-Originating-IP:" line or something similar. Use this IP address to locate the provider. Send complaints to both the webmail provider and the ISP used for the posting.

I am wondering if my Hotmail address causes differences on the Outlook.com interface in Windows 8 as opposed to a true ms or live email address. One reason I ask is that at the top left of the interface of MAIL it says Hotmail. When I log on to Outlook.com in a browser I have the "gear icon" for settings. When I click on the METRO TILE MAIL and the interface is presented along with my mail I can find no where to change settings. If I reveal the "charms" and click on settings I can see nothing that helps?

> Would I have more options if I were to obtain a true MS email and not use Hotmail addy
> If there is not difference, why can't I find the gear icon or a place to change settings?
Thanks greatly! jack ":-D

A lot of spam (but not all) comes from "harvesting" programs that spammers use to "harvest" email addresses left on Internet pages. Some spammers can also harvest addresses from "Forwarded" emails.

So, to eliminate the Internet page source of spam, there are three things you can do:

1) NEVER leave your "personal" email address on the Internet.
Now there are some sites that absolutely INSIST that you leave an email address - like when joining discussion groups, when making a purchase, setting up your profile for your Health Insurance web site, Online banking, etc.

For that requirement, see point #3.​
2) On discussion group postings, always "munge" your mail address if you want to post it.
"Munge" means to disguise it. For example, one of my email addresses (see point #3 for why I have more than one) is rbjamie [at] gmail.com. Notice that I typed out "at" instead of using the @ symbol. That's "munging". Most harvesters look for the @ symbol to get email addresses, so if you leave out the @ symbol by typing "at", the harvesters will not identify it.

However, spammers are getting more sophisticated tools, and harvesters may now look for "at" when it's typed out - which is why I put it in brackets too. But then they may look for "at" in brackets too - it's a real cat-and-mouse game.​

A:Tip on how to keep spam out of your "personal" email address . . .

Forgot to add another option for those "Forwarded" emails that contain a lot of addresses.

If "Auntie" insists on still forwarding her emails without removing all the addresses or using the bcc feature, then tell her this:

You are changing your email address to: (insert your INTERNET EMAIL ADDRESS) and you will no longer get her emails at the address she has. So tell her to forward those emails to your "new" email address (that would be your INTERNET EMAIL ADDRESS). And tell her to put your "new" email address in her address book and delete the current one.

This way at least she will be forwarding stuff that's likely to generate spam to an address that you already use for a repository for junk email. So if it gets contaminated from her forwarding . . . so what?? . . . it's ALREADY contaminated probably (from leaving it as your email address on the Internet).

And too, if Auntie is not too computer savvy (and most, BUT NOT ALL, who forward chain emails and joke emails are NOT computer savvy), you don't want her to have your "personal" email address in her address book, BECAUSE IF SHE GETS ONE OF THOSE WORM VIRUSES (AND THAT'S LIKELY) THAT GOES THROUGH HER ADDRESS BOOK AND MAILS ITSELF OUT TO ALL IN HER ADDRESS BOOK, you want that virus to show up in your Internet Email account.

Of course, it really doesn't matter where a virus shows up - AND I'M ASSUMING YOU HAVE AN ANTIVIRUS ON-ACCESS SCANNER ... Read more

This frequently happens both to me, in email directed to me, and to email which I direct to other who are also MSN subscribers. This is what happens: I send an email to another MSN subscriber, for example: '[email protected]'. It bounces back with "no such email address as '[email protected]'. Somewhere during the transmission "hotmail" has been added to the suffix of the address. The same thing happens to others in sending messages to me!

Hi! I'll try to keep this as brief as possible, but it's really difficult to explain. One of my email buddies (fortunately he's an honest person) recently told me that any email I send him, from both my home and work computers, has a ton of garbled info attached to the end of the email... The info includes previous emails I've sent to other people, cell phone bill details, shopping details - ANY and EVERYTHING I do online is connected to my emails to him. It doesn't matter what email I use... My Outlook account at work, Gmail, Aol, RR... it all attaches info to EVERY email I send to him. Even the "Read Receipt" he receives when I click on one of his emails has info attached to it. !?!?!?!!! IT'S EXTREMELY DISTURBING! And he also receives info from my family members who use my computer at home, so it's not just MY info he's receiving.

I do know that he is on a "Whitelist" with the company he works for (for a very important reason), so he's not bound to the security that everyone else is protected by. He's had his computer restaged twice and it still keeps happening. He uses Outlook and it happens with his desktop AND his laptop at work.

In Outlook, user is only getting an undeliverable error when attempting to send email thru certain address' in her personal address book. When address' in question entered manually no issue. Have tried deleted and re-adding addresses, no fix. Is this a corrupted address book? If so is there a way to fix it? It was mentioned to me trying to export it as a .csv file and import it as a new address book? How does that work? Thx in advance for any assistance.

A:Damaged personal address book

Exporting to a CSV (Comma Separated Value) file simply exports all fields as text with comma delimiters.

Importing takes this file and puts it in the address book.

The resulting exported file can be viewed in Excel, or Word, Notepad etc and may possibly show up any corruption.

We run Terminal Server 4 with Citrix Metaframe. We have Outlook for the users to get their email with. (No one has a PC, everyone is on WYSE WinTerm thinclients). I have created a Personal Address Book for everyone to use but when people go to access it maybe 2 or 3 people can use it. The rest of the people get an error saying you cant log in to the PAB. How do I make this work?

A:Outlook 97 and Personal Address Books

I don't think you can share a PAB. Get everyone out of it Outlook. Have a person who was previously unable to get into the PAB, try again.

I'm not familiar at all with your hardware. But, you can't put PSTs or PABs on network shares because it's like any other unshareable file--it's in use. Since the PAB would be in use when Joanie has Outlook open, Joanie has to close Outlook for Jimmie to get into the PAB.

If you're using a mail server you should be able to set up a global address list.

If you aren't, then the best I can suggest is to have one person be in charge of the address list--everybody submits changes to that person. Once a week, or however often, she puts out a new PAB with instructions to save it to their desktop, close Outlook, overwrite old PAB with new PAB, open Outlook.

Sucks. I know. I hope I've misunderstood what you want.

I have a lot of entries in my OL 97 Personal Address Book. I would like to organize them somehow, either by using a filter, or putting them in their own folders, or by having more than one Personal Address Book. Is there a way to do this?

A:Outlook 97 Personal Address Book

From Outlook Express help:

To organize names in your address book
When you have a large address book, you can organize it in several ways to make it easy to retrieve contacts and groups. You can sort names alphabetically by first name, last name, or e-mail address, and you can order the list in ascending or descending order. You can also change the order of the columns so the information that's most important to you is listed in a way that's useful. In addition, you can view a list of groups separately from the contacts list.

To sort contacts by name, e-mail address, or phone number, click the appropriate column heading above the name list.

To switch columns between ascending and descending sort order, click the column heading.

To change the order of the columns, point to a column heading (Name, E-mail Address, Home Phone, etc.), and then while holding down the right mouse button, drag the column to the left or right until it's located where you want it. Release the mouse button.

Does anyone know if there is a way to print out the Personal Address Book? We are using Outlook 97. When I open in Notepad, it looks terrible.

A:{RESOLVED}Personal Address Book


You should be able to do one of two things very easily. If you just want to print a neat copy of your address book, then find out how to do a mail merge into Microsoft Word and you can have all your contacts formatted nicely into a word document.

If you want to get the data from your address book into another program so that you can manipulate the data, you can use the Export function on the File Menu in Outlook to send your address book to a text file with comma separated values. You should then be able to open this text file in Microsoft excel and manipulate the data any way you want to.

Good luck,

Somehow my Outlook address book doesn't contain my Personal section any longer. How can I add a Personal section into my Outlook Address Book? I have all the contacts - in a file listed under Contacts in the File List ot the left of the screen in Outlook. But I'd like that section to be back in my Address Book. It used to be in there - not sure how it got removed.

Thanks -


A:Outlook Personal Address Book Disappeared!

Hi, It may still be in the Deleted items folder; take a look in that and it may be restoreable if there.
You could have emptied the Deleted Items folder already, so it may not be there or even have been there, but usually all deleted emails go there, and I would think entire folder contents would too.
You can easily re-create a new personal folder in the AB, and manually reenter the items, too, if you have them in the AB....

From either Outlook Express or the MS Works Address book:
then choose type file
choose Exchange Personal Address Book
The new Works address book import completes the action but does not ask for the file location ( I am trying to import a MS Exhange Personal address book into a Works Address Book, which appears to be the address book for Outlook Express a .wab not a .pab) so of course nothing happens and no data is imported.
