    Why do these things happen when you're in a hurry. Just wrote an email yesterday and saved a draft. Yesterday I pasted in a screen dump from snipping tool. Today I updated the email which necessitated moving some text but I just couldn't. Tried everything!!
    Can you help pronto... PLEASE?

    Hi,
    I believe that these attachment thumbnails which have recently started to appear in the inbox of Outlook live are an extreme security risk.
    I very nearly clicked on an attached pdf file thumbnail tonight and I believe that they can carry viruses. I try to be SO careful and Microsoft do this!. You are MUCH less likely to click on the traditional attachment within the email than these thumbnails which are attached to the subject line!
    We are constantly informed how dangerous it can be to open an attached doc so I don't know what the thinking is? :(
    I eventually managed to find out where to stop the attachment thumbnail showing....what a waste of time though and what a very poor and unnecessary idea.

    I'm an over 70 techie and have been into computing as a hobby since the bulletin boards and Netscape days.
    It's sad that, although, I'm philosophically a capitalist and its competition it is disappointing and frustrating that companies are forced in a race to the bottom in many spheres of life. In software it has always been a fact that companies are forced to add 'features' whether you want them or not' and never properly fix old faults or bugs. No one will buy stuff where the advertising claim is that we've fixed some of the problems.....from software to cars etc.
    Why are seriously useful features like my usual 1. 2 day and 1 and 2 week reminders removed? Is it a cost problem with the cost of server storage space?..... I'd rather keep it locally if that's the case. I'm REALLY annoyed with this 'improvement' . MS knows **** well that this is NOT improving life for us so WHY are they doing this....AT LEAST give us an explanation of why they're doing it.
