    Hi all

    Just wondering if any of you happened to bump up to this issue.
    I just realized today that in my contacts there are so many unknown names with email address @hotmail.co.uk.. at a glance it looks like virus or something (please see the attached screenshot from my phone), because none of it is belongs to my friends in the contacts.
    When I click for details, it seems to be connected to Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync.
    The names come up with all possible alphabets:
    have 5 contacts with name beginning with "c"

    • cpdgirl@hotmail.co.uk
    • cvesno@hotmail.co.uk
    • cveuler@hotmail.co.uk
    • cvfgv@hotmail.co.uk
    • cvgsph@hotmail.co.uk
    beginning with "d" is even more:

    • daffy9599@hotmail.co.uk
    • daffymcck@hotmail.co.uk
    • dcvarela@hotmail.co.uk
    • dcvuj@hotmail.co.uk
    • dcwakelyn@hotmail.co.uk
    • ...
    • ...
    • etc..
    • and the list continues.....
    However there's 1 name came up together (have similar traits) but it does not show "@hotmail.co.uk" on the name, only "Cilas Da Silva" (please see the attached photo again).
    So far it does not causing bugs in the phone operation, but i wonder if it send out any info or other things out of my phone.

    Anybody has experienced this? And what did you do to get rid of this?:thinking:

    Thank you..
