    List of everywhere I have lived


    Using Outlook Mail to gather together my Gmail and Tiscali addresses; I can move my pointer to where my name appears on any of the emails in the Inbox and what appears is a little window and written in it is one of my email addresses (the Outlook one) then the word "You" then a list of all the towns I have lived in. I am 77 so there are about 8 towns and of course the earlier ones occurred long before computers were invented.
    Where did all this information come from?

    That sounds like adware.

    Or maybe it is just a British thing.

    Good evening Rocky,
    There is no sign of any advertisements. I am not really bothered that the list of my towns is there. It's just curious as to how the information has has been collected and assembled in chronological order. I have never had a Twitter or Facebook account; so it did not originate from there.

    It is a very odd thing, and I think that I would be concerned if I saw that. I checked my Microsoft Outlook account and there is nothing like that over here. It is just very curious.
