Why Microsoft made the "sending reset confirmation message to the same email" option? Did they counted the trick I mentioned here? Or what?!
absolutely, this is not a tricky way of changing the password. but to make use of it with microsoft, you have to use one email as your address and forward all mails to another email used as your login.
this way, you can also protect your emails from being read by the hijacker.
note that you will also use the address account as the only account to compose messages from, and keep the login account as secret as your password.
