Chinese intervention?

New Contributor

Just finished creating my first microsoft from and wanted to send it, so outlook opened a new mail (very slowly) and the following appeared out of nowhere on the top of the message:

I translated it and it read:

I have no idea why this is happening and what is the cause of this. Is it a problem with Forms or with Outlook?

@Tonborderline I suspect your computer has picked up a virus or malware which is attaching those Chinese characters to your Outlook message. I've certainly never seen anything like that with Forms itself.

I hope not, and so far I didn't get any notifications for that, on the other hand it doesn't seem to be an expected error. Thanks of the suggestion, I will keep an eye out if it happens again,

Hi, Translating those characters through DEEPL.COM let me suppose that is just a spam message. Nothing to be worried about beyond that level. Kind regards Hans
