    Hi all,
    A newbie to this forum. Am looking forward to reading through some posts.

    In the meantime, I have just tried to send two small emails from my home, private machine/account, to two separate people. One is on Hotmail, and one is on Live.co.uk.

    The error message said that they - Outlook (although this account is Hotmail) have notice some strange activity on my account, & temporarily blocked my account.

    They want me to give them my mobile number - BUT I DON'T WANT TO !
    I get fed up with all & sundry sending me bits of carp at every hour of the day, that usually serves no purpose at all, apart from advertising products, services etc.

    I have several accounts with MS-Hotmail & Outlook,,,,, so the last thing I want, is them filling my text messages with junk.

    Can I get around this ?
    Can I actually contact the department that does this ?

    Thanks for taking the time to read this. I hope you can help.

    Hi furkin,

    Verifying your account will not result in Microsoft sending text messages to your phone:

    Verifying your account is part of proving you are the owner of your acocunt, both now and in case it has been or gets compromised.

    I recommend turning on 2-step login verification and changing your password:

    It's probably also not a bad time for you to check this out too:

    Once the steps above are done your problem sending email should stop.
