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.
Hello. Here is the Vietnam session video – 1.5 hours. Most of the narration in the video is in Vietnamese language. If you understand the language, you will love the video. Thanks to Minh Nguyen, the Vietnamese narration is amazing… that is what attendees told me after the session! Thanks to Softline for arranging this event.
This is a special announcement for readers in Vietnam. I am speaking at an event arranged by Softline. We are inviting CFO and CIO from the organizations to attend together. This way, it is much easier to explain the business as well as technical details of technology in a single session. For more information, please contact Ms. Ha Linh at firstname.lastname@example.org Tel: 0918 401 248 or (+848) 3899 2737
See you there!

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.
Here is a fast paced, 8 minute video which will revolutionize Pivot Report Sharing. Using OneDrive or SharePoint, control the visibility and provide full interactivity. Reports render instantly even with large files and low bandwidth.
