Sounds like spam to me - it's nothing I've ever heard of Microsoft doing. Is

this an e-mail message you're getting?

Perhaps you are having a problem with your ISP? Outlook doesn't perform

"HIP-junk", so you are yelling in the wrong direction.

Outlook doesn't do this. Your mial service provider does and you decided to

keep who that is a secret so we can't suggest ways to address the problem.

You don't even say what type of mail account you use.

It won't change just because you use a Mac.

And what does "paid" have to do with anything? You certainly are NOT paying

for the freebie Hotmail account that you are using *IF* that happens to be

your e-mail provider (which you never bothered to identify).

The rest of my response assumes that you installed the Outlook Connector

add-in to add HTTP/Deltasync support to give you IMAP-like access to a free

Hotmail account.


> recently started this HIP junk-Please tell me how to stop it!!


Nope, Outlook didn't start doing that. You installed the Outlook Connector

add-on to access your Hotmail account. It is the Hotmail *service* that

wants proof that a human is using that Hotmail account. So do what it

says: go prove you're a human instead of a spambot using that account.

If you cannot enter the CAPTCHA characters using the add-on then use the

webmail interface to your Hotmail account, login, and enter the

characters shown in the CAPTCHA image to prove you're a human using that

account.

Well, until you decide to authenticate yourself as a human using that

account, it's going to keep prompting you. Of course, you could use your

ISP's e-mail account or some other e-mail provider and hope that they don't

inject a security prompt during login to prove a human is using that

account.

Personally I've found the Outlook Connector to not be reliable enough for

me to bother using it. You could switch to POP access to Hotmail (if that

is the UNIDENTIFIED e-mail provider that you use and assuming you are using

the Outlook Connector add-on to provide HTTP/Deltasync access to Hotmail).

However, I've learned over years of use that Hotmail isn't a reliable

e-mail service itself for business use but it's okay for personal messages

(but it is still not my primary account because of too many outages).

Ooh, like we Usenet users here care about such vapid childish threats.

When using a webnews-for-dummies interface (e.g., Microsoft's Communities,

Google Groups, or a leech site using a forum-to-Usenet proxy), those are

gateways to Usenet. Despite the pretense of a forum, you are participating

in a newsgroup (aka Usenet).
