Warning: Office 365 SPAM – Phishing attack

DO NOT respond to any mails which ask for Urgent Upgrade. Here is a sample mail which I just received.

There is a link called UPGRADE NOW.
DO NOT CLICK ON THIS LINK.

This link leads to an authentic looking Office 365 login page. Needless to say, it is a fake page. This is called a Phishing attack.

DO NOT put your password there.
Just delete the mail permanently and do not think about it again.

I have already informed the relevant authorities in Microsoft. They will do the needful.

If you are in another country or region, you may not receive this particular type of mail. But in any case, do not trust any such mails. If you are an IT person, go to the Office 365 Admin page and check if there is a genuine need for license upgrade. If you are not an IT person, just alert your IT team.

Be safe!.

Link recent files instantly

Here is a smart new feature which allows you to Link recent files instantly. It is difficult to notice but a very nice addition. Just notice the dropdown below the Insert – Link button. Also available with Right Click – Link button. Shows recent files to choose from. Works with Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook. It is similar to the Insert Attachment dropdown in Outlook. One difference.

This list does not show the cloud icon for files which are on OneDrive or SharePoint. Look at the path before adding the link. Whether the file is on local drive or OneDrive, it is not going to automatically give access to others, in case you send the documents to them. The Outlook – Add Attachment list shows the cloud icon and automatically gives EDIT permission to the recipients.
