Outlook and Hotmail problems?

If you are running into Outlook or Hotmail problems, then you might find the service totally down today via their website, Android and iOS apps, or through other services. If Outlook.com isn’t experiencing an outage, you could be having sign-in related issues with their log-in box other than password errors.

You might know Microsoft’s free e-mail service as Windows Live, or Hotmail, and your problems could be far from simple with more complicated issues in regard to receiving or sending messages.

Whatever your issue, take a look below to see the latest status reports that would reveal if the Outlook / Hotmail email service is totally down today, or having minor problems. Those of you with problems might want to leave feedback for others.

    Hotmail Problem :-
    Message preview and typing not reflecting instantly. Problem since last two week. ?
    Any one can give its solution or how to switch over latest version of hotmail in to classic version.

  • A Leppla

    I can see my emails and open them but the content of the emails won’t display. It just says “loading” but nothing in fact loads. Using hotmail on my iPhone6.

  • NetworkZone

    Still unable to sign into Hotmail constantly saying password is incorrect when it is not. Seriously becoming a joke now and Microsoft need to fix this as soon as possible. Cannot access no emails at all on my windows laptop, the Outlook android app and the Gmail app on Android.

    Does anyone know when this will be fixed? So frustrated!!

  • Jearmy Lawson

    @@disqus_A7aPYTs1dR:disqus Please fix the problem.I live in Ohio in the USA. Ever since Thursday my Outlook email has had a message in Black at the bottom saying that, “Your outlook. com (Outlook) account is disconnected.” this is on my Samsung Galaxy Note 5. My computer is down so I can only access anything on my phone and on my tablet. It has an option next to the message saying it’s disconnected saying the word “fix.” I’ve gone through every freaking step multiple times trying to verify my own identity and it will not let me at all. I get to the part where you have to have a code sent to an alternate email or through text or phone call. It has my number ending in 43 when it ends in 09. I don’t understand that at all. I have not changed my phone number. I need to be able to use my Outlook and Microsoft account because I use it for my DirecTV now streaming service and need it to be able to log in if it’s ever accidentally logs out. I’m not paying $35 a month for something I can’t access, the directvnow. And I can’t just create a new email address because I have my more important emails sent to my Outlook email instead of my Gmail email. What is going on? It was already giving me trouble on Wednesday and forced me to have to reset my password which has always been the same for my computer and email for years and I know it is the right one. I made it so I can’t forget it. So I had to go to the irritating process of resetting my password and I reset it to the one that it already was. I had to try it over and over and over again just to get the new password to work and let me in. And then I find out on Friday when I try to look at my emails that my last email was Wednesday when I changed my password and I got that black message at the bottom of the screen saying it’s disconnected. I really rather talk to a person if possible. I’m starting to get angry because all the troubleshooting I’ve tried needs me to log into Microsoft Outlook to be able to troubleshoot which I can’t do. I can’t log into it at all in the first place which is the problem. Getting very angry.
