DoctorLaptop Alert! Windows Live Mail 2012 Now Obsolete!

Using Windows Live Mail 2012 with Outlook.com? No more. Time to update your email application!

From MS Office Support: To provide you an email experience with enhanced performance, security and reliability, the new Outlook.com has been built upon our latest Office 365 infrastructure. Because the Windows Live Mail 2012 email application doesn’t support the protocols used by this new infrastructure, you will no longer be able to send or receive Outlook.com email from Windows Live Mail 2012. If you currently use Windows Live Mail 2012 to connect to Outlook.com, we recommend that you switch to the Mail app on Windows 8.1/10. THIS DOES NOT WORK WITH WINDOWS 7! For Win 7 users, Microsoft suggests you upgrade to Win 10 as a solution, a non-solution for many Win 7 users who can not upgrade due to hardware limitations.

Q. What if I am using Windows 7 and do not wish to, or are unable to, upgrade to use the Mail app?

A. If you do not wish to upgrade, you can access your account directly by signing in via a web browser or you can take advantage of a free one-year subscription for Office 365 Personal and use Outlook 2016 to connect to your account. This Office 365 subscription includes the Outlook 2016 email application as well as other productivity applications such as Word, PowerPoint and Excel. It works on Windows 7, Windows 8/8.1 and Windows 10.

Samsung Urges Consumers Globally to Stop Using Galaxy Note 7

In a statement posted Saturday on its website, Samsung asked users around the world to “immediately” return their existing Galaxy Note 7 and get a replacement.

“We are asking users to power down their Galaxy Note 7s and exchange them as soon as possible,” said Koh Dong-jin, Samsung’s mobile president. “We are expediting replacement devices so that they can be provided through the exchange program as conveniently as possible.”

Earlier this month, Samsung announced an unprecedented recall of 2.5 million Galaxy Note 7s worldwide just two weeks after the phone was launched. That move came after Samsung’s investigation into reports of fires found that rechargeable lithium batteries manufactured by one of its suppliers were at fault.
