Microsoft’s email service Outlook down across the globe


Microsoft’s hugely-popular email client, Outlook, has been suffering from a monumental outage, with thousands of email users reporting problems accessing the email client, logging into the service, and sending and receiving emails.

Thousands of Outlook users have reported issues accessing the email service, with many left confronted with an error page.

“Something went wrong : ( The server can’t sign you in right now. Please try again later,” the page confronting thousands of email users read.

Outlook users across the UK, Europe and United States have the reported problems accessing the service.

The issues with Outlook were first reported around 12:00 GMT.

But despite the ever-growing number of reports across social media, Microsoft has yet to acknowledge the issue.

The Redmond-based technology company’s own service health website, which is designed to show the status of its online services, including those that are currently experiencing difficulty, currently shows no sign of the reported outage.

“Everything is up and running,” it read.

Independent website Down Detector, which measures social mentions around a certain topic to track outages across the globe, showed problems with Outlook across the globe.

Enraged customers have flooded social media to complain about the problems.

One user tweeted: “please fix the server I can’t get anything done”

“Anyone else having issues with Outlook?” another added.

Microsoft’s official Outlook Twitter account is currently replying to users complaining about the outage. The email service is back online.
