Can Microsoft read all my emails through Outlook?

H. It turns out that Outlook, part of Office 365, accesses my Gmail account through Outlook.com. I found that if I did not sign in to my Microsoft account, Outlook could neither send nor receive Gmail.

This is where my paranoia begins. It seems to me that Microsoft is forcing me to turn their corridor into my email. In transactions by mail. It’s not technically necessary, but it does allow Microsoft to access everything I write and receive. It’s just a matter of getting access to information, which has all the value in today’s internet business.

I guess you are not very interested in engaging or commenting on conspiracy theories. But if you want to comment on all this, I would love to hear what you have to say. Anyway, I’m going to stop using Outlook.

– Herb Munson, Ballard:

A: In fact, I can access external email accounts through the Outlook application without having to sign in to my Microsoft account.

That said, I like good conspiracy theories, at least as long as there is real evidence to support it. Yes, I personally believe that at least in the United States, companies are free to own too much of our data.

By the way, Microsoft is a record that does not read customers’ emails.

If you want a higher level of privacy or at least privacy, you may want to try a provider like ProtonMail. The company is located in Switzerland և subject to stricter privacy laws in force in that country և in Europe in general. ProtonMail also says that it encrypts everything. Mail և company is unable to read them. ProtonMail offers a free account option, although if you send and receive a lot of emails, you will most likely find a free account ceiling: 500 MB of storage 150 150 messages per day.

Alternatively, you can always choose to host your own email server. That, of course, would be even more expensive.

H. About a month ago we lost power, I lost my Wi-Fi access from my laptop. I used to use Wi-Fi for about eight years. The “shared” Wi-Fi network offered by Xfinity has even disappeared.

I spent about two hours on the phone with Comcast technology, but he could not figure out the problem. All our phones, printers, tablets have no problem, they are all online.

I know Wi-Fi is off with advanced settings և Device Manager. I also tried to connect, disconnect, and reconnect the adapter in vain. All available updates are posted. How to turn on Wi-Fi again? Do you have any ideas?

– Sherry

A: If it was just a power outage, then restarting Wi-Fi should be not just your computer, but also a simple task to restart any network routers, including cable modems and Wi-Fi routers. But I suspect that in your case the only problem could be a power outage.

If the power outage was due to a power outage or a power outage, it could damage any of your devices, such as your cable modem, Wi-Fi router, or your computer’s Wi-Fi client. You may need to replace one or more of these devices.

It looks like your Wi-Fi client is external. For readers who have a computer with internal client adapters, be aware that if you fry it, you can get a Wi-Fi client that connects to a USB port.
