    When I download a Word file from an email, I get the following message in yellow at the top of the screen:
    GET THE NEW OFFICE It’s one of the perks of having Office 365. This is followed by two rectangles containing: See what’s new and Update Office
    My question is whether this is likely to be spam.

    Your info is obscure for retirees. I get that we will be informed some time later and that there will be assistance in getting new account. What are the facts?

    All I know is that upon retirement I was promised to have my UoMB webmail maintained for as long as my academic activities would continue. Well, here I am, at just a few minutes walking from our campus and going there once or twice daily to communicate with current academic and administrative staff and to meet today’s students who have – as suggested by their parents – asked for my help.

    My comment of April 10 still stands. And what I read in/on UM Today does not make me any the wiser. I wrote some “electronic stuff” in the mid=1960 but that was easy compared with what is thrown at me now. Maybe I should restrict myself to reading the Manitoban.
