January'16: have run, for me, into a new issue w forwarding and accessing email w intro of smartphone into the mix.
Since the 12/24/15 use of Android Smartphone began, with "app" versions of multiple Google and Microsoft "PC-based applications" - counterparts to the mobile apps; have had a 'backlash';
In backlash, mobile phone "appGmail" or "appOutlook" for example, and "appGoogleAccount" or "appMicrosoftAccount" when I attempt to do a normal login on my deskbased PC, the correct binary ["binary" = shorthand term for username/email address + password] is denied.
Then as long as two hours later I receive an email from the "app" based version, signed by either the "Google Account Safety Team," or the "Microsoft Account Safety Team" [and this kills me because the actual email address for both is 'email@example.com' and 'firstname.lastname@example.org';
Each notice uses the terms "blocked," or"prevented," .... somebody tried to login using your creditentials and the login attempt was blocked/prevented. You should consider using a modern [Google or Microsoft] product like [either Gmail or Outlook] which meet current modern security requirements/standards . . .";
This completely ignores the fact it was the Gmail, Outlook, Google Account, Microsoft Account, Google Play, Picasa, Google Photo, and so on - the very products cited in the "blocking letter" as the ones to use which were rejected alleging they did not meet modern security requirements when they were recommended in the next phrase of the email denying me access;
My first thought was somehow my pc-based Google and Microsoft applications infected or corrupted, but having done all the searching, disinfecting, running MS "sfc /scannow" multiple times on this 64-bit pc running 64-bit Windows 7_HomePrem SP1 completely up to date as of this morning after MS Tuesday, 01/02/16, I have found no evidence, and not even the partially cloud based forensic tools I have run show anything;
I have two administrator and two standard user accounts; most of the time I run one of the standard user accounts (alternating qualitatively so each backs up the other; same with admin a/c's);
I can't believe what seems to be happening - that "apps" are overriding "applications" of the same name, or I would have heard of it by now;
So something else is going on, but my meager bag of tools is no match -- I was struck by the fact I could not find descriptions of a similar problem in the literature which was another reason I believe something else is happening than just the "apps" x "applications" war ?
Hoping you might have some ideas or suggestions, or tell me where to go?
