Gmail Alert


I received this bogus Gmail Alert from my gmail account.

===
Subject: Gmail Alert

Message:
You are receiving this email because we detected numerous failed login attempts to your account from an unfamiliar location. We are required to open an investigation into this matter.

Kindly complete the account validation process below.

Gmail Logn <-- this is a bogus website made using a wordpress, and looks like a gmail website login page.
===

Here are some pointers to avoid this phishing techniques, and help you mitigate risk.

  1. Check the FROM email address, the normal technique is hiding (spoofing) their identity using the real company email as a display. DO NOT reply when you receive a similar email, simply delete the message.
  2. It comes a URL link to click, advising you to verify your account information. When you hover your mouse to the link it will show the actual URL address. In this example, the Gmail Login is pointing to a bogus website http://hfhkuching.org/wp-content/ <-- DO NOT click. What you need to do is close all your Internet browser, open a new one, and visit the "real" URL address e.g. http://www.gmail.com.
If you're still need assistance, don't hesitate to ask a friend who knows a little computer/email security. Or post a question here, and I will provide an answer.

Office365 - This resource doesn't accept meetings longer than 1440 minutes

When you create a meeting schedule for number of days, you will see an error  "This resource doesn't accept meetings longer than 1440 minutes". By default the mailbox or room was set for a maximum limit of 1440 minutes.

Here's how you can disable this limit.
Login to the Office 365 Administration ConsoleIn Microsoft Office 365 Exchange, click on Manage.In Manage My Orgnization, click the drop down arrow, and click on Select on Another User. This will prompt you to select the mailbox or room to manage.Select a Mailbox or Room, click OK.In Option, click on Settings.In Scheduling Options, un-check the "Limit meeting duration", then click on Save. That's all. You can now schedule a meeting or reserve a room for number of days.

Hope this help you.
