Microsoft Forums does not have unsubscription tie-up with Hotmail RRS feed

  • Question

  • In Hotmail/Outlook, when I try to manage the emails from MSDN it throws the following warnings. I feel that Microsoft products should take the lead in having a streamlined interoperability. There seems to be a steep disconnect between Hotmail and MSDN forums which this message reveals.

  • Hmm... this seems somewhat self-evident to me.

    Apparently "Hotmail" (nee Outlook.com) is looking for some sort of 'unsubscribe' information, ostensibly in the email message -- certainly something we all would expect to see. Outlook.com isn't seeing that so it blocks the sender -- presumably because it thinks it's spam not compliant with the CAN-SPAM Act, or other regulations.

    Either Outlook.com has overstepped its bounds or the emails coming from MSDN Forums are non-compliant.

    Seems a simple question to me.

    @Susan -- disconnected platforms are really not relevant. To Deepak's point, you'd certainly expect that if Outlook.com has implemented certain standards-checks on inbound emails, that ALL emails generated from Microsoft properties would be compliant with those standards. Perhaps "interoperability" wasn't the correct term for Deepak to use, but I agree that email generation and email checking ought to all be conformant to the same corporate standards.

  • They are two disconnected platforms.  I think you are asking/expecting way too much here.

  • What's the ask? You want a feature added to Hotmail that's specific to just the forums?

    Sorry for the confusion. Thanks!
