As of Feb 2017 #Outlook (outlook.live.com/) scans emails arriving in your inbox and it sends all found URLs to #Bing, to be indexed by Bing crawler.

This effectively makes all one-time use links like login/pass-reset/etc useless.

@emanuele I’m pretty sure one-time links still work when users receive them through Outlook though. My guess would be that they delay indexation of all URLs to make sure the single-use ones, which typically expire after a couple of days, are still valid when they’re visited.

@ilyess yep, as long as you use them when you receive the mail should be ok.
Anyway it's weird private mail links are shared with a public indexing service.
