    Outlook site oddities

    A few minutes ago Malwarebytes started blocking outgoing traffic to outlook.office365.com. I have an outlook.com email address as an account in Outlook. I tried connecting via Edge, and get

    "Can’t connect securely to this page
    This might be because the site uses outdated or unsafe TLS security settings. If this keeps happening, try contacting the website’s owner."

    When I connect to outlook.com, everything is fine.

    Is anyone else getting this?
    Create a fresh drive image before making system changes, in case you need to start over!

    Not here. Are you just using the default Exchange connection?

    NOTE: I'm using the Windows Firewall

    It has vanished as suddenly as it appeared.

    I have a business account that goes through the Exchange connection, but that account is not on Outlook on this PC, it's on my laptop. I have an outlook.com account in Outlook on this PC.

    I have no idea why Outlook was trying to connect to the Exchange server, but apparently it has decided to stop now.

    I also use the Windows Firewall.

    That was strange. I checked the IP address that Outlook was using, 132.245.72.114, and it's still giving the same "not secure" warning, but the IP lookup gives

    "IP Lookup Result for 132.245.72.114

    I don't quite know what to make of it.

    Within the last year all Outlook.com accounts including Hotmail.com, live.com, & msn.com were migrated to be Exchange Server based accounts. If you setup one of these in Outlook letting Outlook auto-discover the account you'll get an Exchange account.

    Possibly a brief downtime on one of the servers and the redirect page was incorrectly setup. I just reset the cache and forced a check via Qualys, it looks like it covered 16 servers on at least 2 ASNs, results are all solid A's with the most notable issue being "Server sent invalid HSTS policy.", which I think is minor.

    Example result details

    I did let Outlook auto-discover. I just looked closer at the outlook.com account (it's not my default, so I selected the Inbox) and it gave me the "All folders are up to date. Connected to: Microsoft Exchange" at the bottom.

    Like satrow said, probably a redirect that wasn't setup correctly. All's still fine, just that short blip earlier.
