Outlook.com ‘Safelinks’

Recommended Posts

Hi, I’ve not been looking forward to the day they implemented this on my account but Microsoft did it this week.

Spammer links/URLs are now embedded within a new string/link which Microsoft has replaced the original link with.

Users cannot disable this unwarranted, unwanted change. It means a user cannot review the link easily before visiting the webpage, but it also means SpamCop doesn’t seem able to identify the site. So now reports are suggested for the host/reverse proxy provider :(

Are there any plans to take care of this on the SpamCop side? Otherwise it requires people like I to identify the link within the Microsoft mess, copy that, remove the % handling for forward slash characters, open another instance of the SpamCop page and use that to get the reporting address/IP of the spamvertized site etc, then come back to the original page and add a user report address.

example:



(Thanks Microsoft for messing this up but not actually reducing the spam junk I get from the same criminal’s...)
