Hello Everyone,

 

My name is Carlo and I am a Senior Support Analyst for Microsoft. I am part of the Hotmail Escalations Team handling this issue.

 

In the pursuit of protecting the privacy of our users, Microsoft has opted to mask the X-Originating IP address. This is a planned change on the part of Microsoft in order to secure the well-being and safety of our customers.

 

Microsoft is in the path of continuously improving the online safety and security of its users. Any feedback regarding this concern would be treated with utmost attention.

 

I have locked this thread now. If you are encountering a different issue, please create another thread.

 

We appreciate your patience and understanding regarding this matter.

 

Thank you.

 

Best Regards,

 

Carlo

I was abroad and had this issue with all hotmails I received.  There is no information on the net at all about what X-EIP means. So it must be something new.
