Microsoft has introduced a new “Reply-All Storm Protection” feature to prevent the email storms. This “Reply Allpocalypse” occurs when an email is sent to a large distribution list, and people start the endless chain of reply-all email threads. It can become a severe business disruption that ends up throttling or crashing the mail servers of the company for hours. With this new feature, Microsoft has fixed this problem for large organizations that have been a victim of this issue for years.

Back in 2019 at the Microsoft Ignite, the exchange team had announced that they would introduce a protection feature against the reply-all email storms to reduce its impact. This week, the feature rolled out in Office 365 worldwide.

This new block feature will detect the emails with 10 reply-all sequences to more than 5000 recipients within a span of 60 minutes. As the feature gets triggered, the Exchange Online will block all subsequent replies to the email thread for the next four hours thereby, allowing sufficient time to the servers to prioritize the genuine emails and shut down the reply-all storm. Microsoft itself has suffered from the email storm problems plenty of times, and hence they decided to test the first version of this feature on its network. It came out as a winner after successfully reducing the impact of reply-all email storms within Microsoft.

In a recent blog post, the Microsoft Exchange team has revealed that they are considering to bring future enhancements to the feature as per customer feedback, to improve the detection accuracy and block durations. They have also planned to introduce new features such as add control for exchange admins and provide real-time notifications and ongoing reply-all storm reports to the companies. Furthermore, they added that after a while, they are expecting to tweak, improvise and fine-tune the feature on the basis of consumption telemetry and customer feedback in order to make it even more valuable to a wider range of Office 365 customers.

This feature will immensely benefit large organizations with an extensive distribution list. As incidents like this happen now and then. Recently, Microsoft had suffered this issue in 2019 and March 2020 when more than 50,000 employees were stuck in a reply-all email storm. It generated a massive amount of traffic and ended up clogging the company’s internal communications for hours. Hence, Microsoft fixed this problem by releasing this new feature for the Officer 365 customers to help them stop this reply-all email storms.

The Exchange team said that regardless of which company people work for, humans will still act like humans. They are already noticing the initial version successfully minimizing the effects within the premise of Microsoft.

As time passes, the working condition and procedure change continuously. With time people and their work practices and habits change. MS Teams is one of the long lists of programs to make the change.

With the help of Microsoft Teams, users are able to connect with the members of teams in the organization. It becomes essential when users have to work remotely. When you have to contact new clients or customers, then you have to add them to your Teams contact list. If you need to contact them for a small number of times, then you can add them to the contact list as a Guest. When you add any contact as a Guest, then that contact will have very restricted control over the data provided on the application.

You have to find a contact to add as Guest. You can follow these steps to add any contacts as the Guest in the MS Teams:

  • Click on the three-dotted icon (…) on the right top corner of the screen.
  • Click on Add Member in the displayed list.
  • Now, you have to enter the complete email address of that contact in the displayed dialogue box.
  • After filling the complete email address, you have to fill the name for that Guest contact in the prompted dialogue box.
  • Now, you have to tap on the button, mentioning “Add.”
  • After this process, the Guest is going to receive an email, which contains the invitation to join your team. Now, you will have them as a Guest member on your team as soon as they accept the invitation.

Note: If you get the message mentioning the fact that the email address can’t be found (when you have entered the email address), then you should check the spelling once. If that is correct, then you have to check the list of block people in the account of Office 365.

Permissions of the Guest Member

Granted Features:

  • This profile of the member has provided the option to secure the data of the organization. Here, the guest member is allowed to send the message (personal or public) as other members of the team.
  • They have access to send or share the files and documents among the members.
  • They can create a private chat room box.

Restricted Features:

  • Guest members cannot schedule any meetings.
  • Guest members cannot change settings in the MS Teams.
  • Guest members cannot create a personal new team.
  • Guest members cannot manage the application and its working.

There are some options, which can be in control of Guest members if the permanent members wish to. If you wish to change the default setting of the guest member, then you have to follow these steps:

  • Go to the Options Menu.
  • Go to the tab “Settings.”
  • Tap on “Manage Team”
  • Now, click on the section “Guest Permissions.”
  • Here you have the list of options with the toggle button in front of them.
  • You can change the settings by clicking on the buttons.

These members are displayed with different labels in the interface of the MS Teams. This distinction provides clear information to the members of the teams who are temporary and who are permanent. Every external guest user will contain the suffix “Guest” in their name on the team.

If you have to contact a person only for once, then you don’t have to create a guest member in the team.

Microsoft has decided to end investments in facial recognition firms after AnyVision controversy related to secret surveillance on the West Bank.

Microsoft has said that the company will no longer invest in third party companies that are involved in developing facial recognition apps. The company has taken this decision following the controversy regarding AnyVision facial recognition company, which is based in Israel. The human rights activists and critics have alleged the company to involve in a nonitoring program throughout the West Bank. According to a report of NBC News, which is revealing the relationship of the Israel based company with the government, it was said that Microsoft had invested heavily in Israel based facial recognition startup. The Israel based AnyVision is using its technology to help the government of Israel to surveil the West Bank and Palestinians living through the area. Further, the report said that while doing so, the tech giant has broken its public pledge of avoiding the use of technology if it is invading the democratic rights.

It is worth noting here that AnyVision around which the whole controversy revolving is based in Israel but has several offices in the UK, USA, and Singapore also. AnyVision sells facial recognition apps based on artificial intelligence technology. The facial recognition technology sold by AnyVision is helpful for the customers if they want to identify any individual or objects or the people in the Smartphone or security camera. The facial recognition app then tracks the target individuals or objects whenever they move along with providing essential data regarding them.

Meanwhile, while defending itself from the allegations, said that the company had investigated the matter by constituting an independent investigation team under General Eric Holder, the former US attorney general. The company said that no clues or proofs were found about the involvement of AnyVision in any mass surveillance program. The investigation team under General Eric at Covington & Burling, which is an international law firm, found nothing suspicious regarding the use of facial recognition technology by AnyVision in any surveillance program. The company said if they have got any proof regarding the allegations, then the company would have constituted the pledge of breach of the financial portfolio on the ethical use of facial recognition technology.

Amidst all, the tech giant has further declared that the company has started divesting from the Israel based AnyVision. The company also made it clear that in the future also it will not invest in third party companies making such technologies. The company said that such investment by it does not allow any company to involve in such practices, which is not democratic. Further, the company also made it clear in an announcement that it has shifted its focus to developing a commercial relationship with the companies so that it could exercise greater control on use of such sensitive technologies in the future. However, the company is now stopping investing in AnyVision, but it is not the only facial recognition technology that the company owns, but also it has the FaceAPI. FaceAPI is also a facial recognition technology developed by the tech giant t through its cloud platform Azure; however, the company has never used such sensitive technology for any surveillance program.

Microsoft recently reorganized the team of Windows and its devices by introducing Panos Panay for the charge of both Microsoft hardware and Windows. Although these are the early days for Panay, we are beginning to get a glimpse of how situations may switch with the Windows OS.

In the first 30 days of the Panay, he had spent a lot of time in learning, observing, listening, and working hard with the Microsoft team to make a visualization for the next era of Windows. He wonders while working closely with the Insiders team and the depth of knowledge and level of dedication they possess. Panay recently posted a new blog post in which he explained his experience of working with the Microsoft extraordinary tech geniuses.

He stated that in order to get the Windows innovations going and carry on to grow, they would need an intelligent, responsible and powerful person to show the way to this exceptionally skilled team to the new level. Thereafter, he officially announced Amanda Langowski as the new head for Windows Insider Program.  

The new leader of Microsoft’s Windows Insider Program Langowski is one of the old hands of the company that posses over 20 years of experience. The projects he had worked on before are Windows beta programs, flighting team, Windows Phone, Windows Mobile, and more. Overall he deserves such a position in the company, and now he will surely make innovations in future projects.

He will soon lead to testing of Windows 10 and then an essential feedback loop of the software. Dona Sarkar initially led this project for the past several years. Sarkar is now leading a new project in the company called Microsoft Developer Relations and is presently serving in the company. However, the former chief of the Insider program, Gabe Aul, left the company last year, and then he continued his career in Facebook’s virtual and augmented reality program as the role of engineer.

As we told you before, Panay intends to make a new era of Windows, and he is presently making a visualization to take the Windows OS to the next level. The project has attempted several methods to tempt developers to Windows over the previous five years, but some attempts were not effective enough. Even the regularity of Windows 10 updates has sometimes been a bit slower during the last 12 months that left testers as well as Windows users doubting for what’s happening.

Now Panay has decided to make certain changes into the operating system, and he will also focus on the desktop versions of Windows 10. He will surely add some of his own styling in the operating system, but he cleared that he is going to make the OS simplified and quick. The Windows 10 OS has clearly improved since its past 5 years of constant development and updates.

However, people are now in quest of a fresh look and feel for the Windows operating system, and it seems minor changes are not enough for them to keep it using. According to the Windows 1 billion users teaser video, it is now apparent the team is planning to make the operating system’s UI more simplified. The Start menu is also going to change significantly, as we saw in the teaser video of the Windows 1 billion user celebration. Let’s see how the next operating system updates going to look and work like.

KellieMinton  arrived on the cyber security scene in the early 2000s when virus and malware were still new and slowly evolving. Her longtime affair with writing with an interest in the cybersecurity industry, combined with her IT degree, has contributed to experience several aspects of security suite industry such as blogging at  .


Microsoft recently reported a new Windows vulnerability regarding remote code execution, and the company said that the vulnerability could take place in every available Windows versions.

Such vulnerability, however, can be easily exploited resulting in several “limited targeted attacks,” and the cybercriminals can run malware or codes on the device of the victim remotely if such attacks could be pulled off by them successfully. Further, Microsoft disclosed that attackers and cybercriminals were previously exploiting an unknown security vulnerability available in all versions of windows even including Windows 10.  It has also been revealed by Microsoft that currently, there is no patch for the security vulnerability right now.

Further, the company explained that the security threat having two remote code execution occurs in Microsoft Windows when a specially crafted multi-master font -Adobe Type 1 PostScript format is improperly handled by the Widows Adobe Type Manager Library. The company explained that the cyber-thief could exploit the security vulnerabilities in multiple ways as such the cyber-thief can convince the users to open a particular crafted viewing or file available within the Windows Preview pane. The tech giant, Microsoft, has provided it the rating of Critical, which is also the highest rating given by the company to any vulnerability.

In an advisory introduced by Microsoft, it was said that the company is aware of the cybercriminals launching and exploiting limited, targeted attacks. However, the company refrained from mentioning anything about the attackers who are beginning or operating the attacks and at what scale. The company also said that the company is working hard to find a fix or patch for security vulnerability. Still, until then, the users should take the advisory as a warning. Apart from that, the company said that Windows 7 is also affected by the security vulnerability and only the enterprise users who have extended security support will get the patches.

Amidst all, the advisory introduced by Microsoft has offered a temporary patch for the Windows users who are affected by the security vulnerability and can get rid of the weakness until the company provided a patch for it. Most of the users are aware with the fact that Microsoft often releases the security fixes on the second Tuesday of each month and the so patch regarding the current security vulnerability could be announced on April 14. But, occasionally, the software giant also issues patches in severe cases breaking the rule as was spotted when Microsoft released the emergency patch for the leaked Windows 10 security threat. The windows patch was disclosed when the company found prematurely about a security threat regarding windows 10. However,  it has been speculating by the users that the company may release the patch on Tuesday as it usually does. Still, the company has not yet confirmed anything itself regarding the date of introducing any patch. The company in its advisory has said that the users may opt to disable the preview pant and details in the Windows explorer to mitigate the flaw for some temporary period.

Microsoft has signed a new deal with NFL making a way to utilize Microsoft Teams by all 32 groups of NFL. The newly signed contract has now broadened and restored the partnership of both parties by making the Microsoft Teams be the official interaction platform of the league.  According to Microsoft, Now the league will continue to use the Surface products as the chief and official tablets. After the new deal signed with NFL, the organizations will become able to use the services for connecting one communication hub to be used for hosting calls, meetings, managing internal calendars along with arranging chats and conferences and syncing the documents all across the Microsoft devices such Mac, iOS, Android and Windows devices.

The restored and broadened collaboration between the two parties could be seen as a massive win for the tech giant as IBM preferred  Slack over Microsoft. IBM preferred Slack instead of Microsoft for empowering its communication system all across the company for more than 350,000 employees working in the company. It was a big win for Slack over its rival company Microsoft which makes Slack the biggest customer of IBM, and according to some reports, IBM is experimenting with the communication system of Slack far back from the year 2014.

Meanwhile, the noticeable thing is that Microsoft established its partnership with NFL in the year 2013 with the mission to use the technology for empowering the people related to the football such as players, coaches, fans and officials. From the last seven years, Microsoft Surface has become a crucial tool for the NFL, which is utilizing it not only on-field but also off the field. The device has transformed everything till not, which includes game planning, instant replays, experiences of the fans, and the Draft and scouting combine of the NFL. Microsoft supplied the surface devices, which were more than 2,000 in numbers, along with deploying 170 windows servers all-around 35 stadiums across the globe.

Apart from the above facilities provided by the tech giant to the NFL, the company also, with the help of its innovative technology-empowered, almost 333 events annually on the prestigious game day for NFL. Now, the multi-year expansion of the partnership for the NFL will encourage the tech giant to come with more innovative ideas and devices for the team, along with its individual NFL teams. The collaboration between the tech giant and the NFL was not always smooth sailing for the tech giant. The tech giant had to face many problems and controversies too. In the year 2016, the New England Patriots stopped using the Surface tablets produced by the tech giant and stated that the performance of the Surface tablets is not consistent enough.  The company was compelled to defend its products saying and struggled a lot to restore the partnership by convincing the Patriots.

Microsoft also spends a whole year coach the announcers of the league to not call its tablets iPods as the announcers did not know about the product, and they often resemble it as iPod like a tool. Amidst all, the competition between Slack and Microsoft is fierce when it comes to providing the best communication platform to its customers. Both the companies are innovating to make their products the best and more innovative so it could win the hearts of their clients.

Backing up your new computer with Windows 10 Pro OEM (or one that you recently updated after Windows 7 support ends) shouldn't be complicated. With a quick run, you can activate some of the basic security functions of the operating system, and disable some of the most annoying ones, without compromising your device.


Here's how.


Create your backup point

The first thing to do with a new computer with Windows 10 is to activate System Restore. Imagine this as a storage point for your machine. If things go wrong when trying to set up a safer machine, you can go back to this nice relocation and start with a clean table. Since it is disabled by default in Windows 10, you must activate it manually by following these steps:


1. Go to the Windows Cortana search box and enter System Restore.


2. Select Control Panel and click Create recovery point.


3. When the System Properties dialog box appears, click on the System Protection tab.


4. Select the drive on which Windows is installed. For most people, this will be disk C.


5. Click Configure.


6. Click Activate system protection, then click OK.


From here, you can always return to the System Properties field and click on System Restore to reset your computer at that time.


Kill bloatware

One of the most unpleasant things about buying a new Windows computer is that it is never really new. Even if your hands are the first to get it out of the bright box, Microsoft and the manufacturer invariably filled your machine with barely functional, unwanted or trial software that is not in use on your computer and takes valuable resources. finally, obsolete and has a number of vulnerabilities. Kill these programs:


1. Go to Start, then Settings, then Applications.


2. You should see a list of all installed applications in the Applications and features section. If you right-click on one of these options, you can uninstall it.


First semester orientation for your software.

After running Bloatware Pest Control, you want to make a backup of your other software and drivers, making sure they are up to date. In this way, the risk of infection can be eliminated for entire classes and families of viruses and malware. The easiest way to do this is to download the Windows Update Wizard and follow its instructions.


If you have problems with the automated process, there is a manual option:


1. Go to Start and then Settings.


2. Select Update and security, then Windows Update.


Only for locals

By default, when you log in to Windows 10, you must use your Microsoft account, the same one you use for your Microsoft email. A feature of this type of connection is that any changes you make to your configuration on your new Windows 10 computer will automatically synchronize with all other Windows 10 devices.


This seems to be a practical advantage. This is not the case. Essentially, a partition is compromised against compromise between devices if something (or someone) affects your Microsoft account. So make sure you have a single local account connection that can only be used on your new Windows 10 computer:


1. Save all currently open jobs and close the program used.


2. Go to Start and then Settings.


3. Click Accounts, then click your email address and accounts in the left column.


4. Instead, click on the Connect with local account link.


5. When prompted, enter the password you currently use to log in to your Microsoft account (and the same password you currently use to unlock your laptop) and click Next.


6. A new message will ask you to create a username, password and password suggestion. Once you have entered the text, click Next.


7. Click Sign out and you're done.

This will take you back to the device login screen where you can enter your new password to log in again. At this point, you will probably also notice a much faster connection.


Stop the stalker

Windows 10 automatically tracks your location and monitors your behavior to sell ads. To disable both features to better protect your privacy:


1. Go to Start and then Settings.


2. Click on Privacy, the icon that looks like a lock.


3. Click Location, then click the Activate button to deactivate location tracking.


4. To disable ad tracking:


5. Return to the privacy screen you were in.


6. Uncheck the Use app promotion ID option to make your ads more interesting based on the activity of your application.


Activate your firewall and antivirus

If you have been using Windows for a while, you know the Windows Defender Security Center well. It is a good first step to control the general state of your computer, but it is not enough. Another level of security is already integrated in Windows 10. You must use it by activating the firewall and antivirus protection. That's how:


1. Return to your Control Panel, then return to System and Security.


2. Click Windows Defender Firewall and then click Enable or Disable Windows Defender Firewall in the sidebar.


3. In the public and private network settings, click the Activate Windows Defender firewall button.


4. Select the Notify me when Windows Defender firewall blocks a new application check box.


Once your firewall starts, read the CNET summary of the best antivirus software for Windows 10 and browse until you find the one that meets your needs. Hope above is helpful for you. And I suggest tobuy Windows 10 Pro Key. If you want to obtain Windows 10 system.
