Outlook.com Issues Reports

Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
  • ankurb Ankur Banerjee 🆔 (@ankurb) reported

    Here's the kicker: since a lot of companies use @Outlook as the email service, it would be trivially easy for @Microsoft to allow people to confirm their work email address and issue a portable, digital credential that proves employment history.

  • basam_ars mohammed basam (@basam_ars) reported

    @BruceLe00520877 @Outlook I have this same issue

  • Metbot65 Neil Metcalfe (@Metbot65) reported

    @Outlook issues with storage limits! Email should allow 15Gb but @Microsoft has 5Gb limit including Email attachments and One drive - this seems dumb, either we have 15Gb of email storage or not? Seems a sneeky way to enforce subscription!

  • merritt_dominic Dominic Merritt (@merritt_dominic) reported

    @talesofmrst @Outlook @Office Ok. I had this trouble with desktop so I started using the online version.

  • jonnyfromrhu Jonathan (@jonnyfromrhu) reported

    Hi @Outlook , my email seems to have broken. From no issues at all, it's suddenly showing 115% full and not accepting emails. I've deleted hundreds tonight to no avail. Could you please help?

  • talesofmrst JT (@talesofmrst) reported

    Anyone having issues with emails going to their junk/not being sent through? Caused a nightmare at school with external professionals for the past week! @Outlook @Office

  • hanstermaten Hans ter Maten (@hanstermaten) reported

    @Outlook What's going on with hotmail? I'm receiving a huge amount of spam /phishing messages (20-30 each day) in my regular inbox the last weeks, which is extremely frustrating 😒. Please fix it

  • D_Mann_UK D (@D_Mann_UK) reported

    @Microsoft @Outlook When AI is now sophisticated enough to write poems, why (on the second highest junk filtering setting) is my inbox constantly full spam? Is something broken?

  • tazorack Taz 泰秀樂 (@tazorack) reported

    @Outlook @MicrosoftHelps can you update outlook? I do not know if this is just outlook online and not the desktop program, but the search is terrible. I searched for email from a specific email address and it shows emails that is related, but not from that specific email address.

  • darksoulone1 darksoulone (@darksoulone1) reported

  • drsjamesserra James (@drsjamesserra) reported

    Why does @Outlook suck after pasting text from another source? Can’t type anything, it’s so slow…

  • dwmal1 David Malone (@dwmal1) reported

    @gmail Someone emailed an @outlook.com address from a mail server I run. The outlook address was forwarded to a gmail address. However, gmail rejected the forwarded mail with an SPF failure, checking against my server's SPF. Haven't seen before, and looks like outlook/gmail issue?

    @Office I keep getting forced to use the new, broken, version of @Outlook on my Mac. And every time I have to revert back to the legacy version and report the same problem. Please STOP forcing me to use the new version until it has been fixed.

    @Outlook Good morning Outlook, is there a problem in the Wakefield, UK area, as I have not received any emails since yesterday, and when I try to send email, I get a message say error in adding address.

  • stellrowe Estelle Rowe (@stellrowe) reported

    @CarlAustinBehan @Office @Outlook This happened to me recently. Lost the ability to sign in or change password. Contacted Microsoft support who took details etc. but didn’t resolve the issue on the call. It was another week before I could re-set my password.

  • Ophy_xo Ophy (@Ophy_xo) reported

    @Outlook Please fix your mess. For literally months now it's a fight to see any emails. You click one and the whole thing is unresponsive. You try to open a new tab for outlook and it will take 10 minutes to even attempt to load at that point. This is not a 'my computer' problem.

  • Ascpeaa Ace ⛸ (@Ascpeaa) reported

    Hey guys is @Outlook not working for anyone? I can’t send or receive any emails from them or gmail??? Also saying I have an account error??? Anyone having the same issue???

  • TiffDubb4 Tiff Dubb (@TiffDubb4) reported

    @vijayamalla @Outlook Outlook, your “tips” don’t work. I get 20-30 spam emails EVERY DAY! Fix it!

  • Mali_D M (@Mali_D) reported

    @Outlook @MicrosoftHelps why has Outlook been automatically unsubscribing me from loads of newsletters in the last month? It all started after your junk mail issue in Feb as far as I can tell.

  • xaxagab0r big ange (@xaxagab0r) reported

    @Outlook the biggest waste of time in the web outlook is when I select all emails in my inbox but I'm unable to drag them to a folder. You have 30 days to fix this or I will serve you in a dance battle.

  • vijayamalla Vijaya Malla 🇮🇳🇺🇸 (@vijayamalla) reported

    @Outlook 's spam filter is broken again, tons of span emails coming to Focused inbox since 10AM EST
