    email problem and attention required
    « on: January 09, 2019, 11:36:24 AM »
    As of yesterday, when I open an email, I get a page full of links. The email won't open to the page automatically. If I click on one of the links, the email
    shows like it should.
    I now have a triangle beside my email account the says "account settings out of date."
    When I click on fix account I get a box with "Attention required." Please update password.

    Not sure what to do.
    Thank you for any help!

    Just wondering, what email service / provider / app are you using? Just to be sure :)

    Maybe it is time to try a new free e0mail account.
    Some of the most popular are:
    Gmail.com
    Zoo Mail
    Outlook.com
    mail.com
    Yahoo mail
    ProtoMail
    AOL Mail
    iCloud
    .. and many others.  Here is a link:

    You can also buy yourself a vanity e-mail server for a modest price.
    A domain vendor like www.Godaddy.com  can set up up a name and a site on their servers.  They will talk to over the phone and take your money.  ;)

      Account settings has been solved.

      The problem I still have is a page full of links to click on.
      When I pick a link to click the email will open as it should.
      I believe I'm using outlook.

        I am using outlook. I mentioned a message account out of date. I solved that.
        The only problem I am having is the email messages I open are all links.
        Looks like someone wrote a long letter.
        The email does not open normally.
