I noticed automatic email notifications are being sent from domain.

It is expected because I believe this community is build on top of khoros platform.

However, I would like recommend to have a better privacy and trust , create a mechanism so notification emails would send directly from domain.

It would be easier for spam management and also it is more reliable.

Thank you for upvoting, I also noticed this when we notice emails are being sent to Junk and as I was investigating whether it is trustworthy or not, I realize this issue cause by Microsoft Technical Community.

This changed with the New Year. I missed a lot of notifications because of the change
and I was slow to notice the change.

Thank you for the feedback, this change was made because the emails from our old email were getting marked as spam due to a very tight DMARC policy on our domain settings.

This was the quickest and most effective way of ensuring that you continued to get emails from the platform and we are currently investigating how we might solve this problem with Khoros.


We will also shortly be styling our email notifications, which we hope will help reduce this confusion in the future.

Hi @Allen 


Thank you for clarification, this actually brings confusion and some emails sent to Spams and it took a while to investigate and verify it is the safe email and for many users it has been confusing too. I hope this would be fixed in future and we would have mail from Microsoft's domain in future, it would be easier for administrators too.

Privileged Identity Management, segmented tenants for customer administration, and 2FA keep me from having a heart attack. Definitely upvoted.

@bradleyfell Thanks for the upvote, I am not 100% sure what all those things have to do with the domain emails are delivered from the Microsoft Tech Community but great to have you onboard.

We continue to work with the platform vendor to identify a long term solution to this issue, as soon as we have I will be sure to update this thread.

I suspected phish and clicked one of the notifications coming from the domain I don't recognize, before I could recognize I logged in with my credentials... thanks for keeping me on my toes :)

Thanks for the information, @Allen. Upvoting and commenting to stay informed on this topic in case you're ever able to change the sending domain back to *@MSTechCommunity.Microsoft.Com or *@*.Microsoft.Com or *@Microsoft.Com. :smile:

I want to be notified as well. I find it odd that it's coming from a different email domain then what it used to and I didn't feel safe. I was almost going to put it in my junk folder until I saw there are more like me.

This is really bad. You don't fix a problem at your end (MS) by making your emails less trustworthy and cause confusion for many people receiving them!


"were getting marked as spam due to a very tight DMARC policy on our domain settings"


That's your problem (MS), it shouldn't be made to be our problem.


Please switch back to an sender address that we can actually trust without having to research it to find out who the heck it is. Why on earth can you not make something like just work??? The MS in front of techcommunity is completely redundant btw.




These messages are now being qauantined in a default defender setup in M365 :(

Thanks for posting, we have had one or two other reports of this and I would be obliged if you could save the email you have received to your desktop and then attach it as a file to a new email and then email it to our team. Contact Us


Please make sure you attach the email as a file to your email as I need the complete headers to help understand why it got marked as spam.

@Allen The message was stuck in Quarantine so it was never received in Outlook for me to save.


However, the one generated by @gamagrasacoutlookcom's post made it to my inbox so I assume you've got it sorted...
