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.

    Well, it IS for some of us! Extremely annoying, and not the first time it happens!

  • Emy Campbell-Boross

    You are not the only one. I’ve had this problem for two days now, and several times before.

  • Emy Campbell-Boross

    My outlook/ hotmail hasn’t opened for two days now. This is a recurring problem – the blue opening line goes almost to the end but then it stops. It works on my android smartphone but not on my android tablet or my Windows 10 pc.

  • Catherine Townsend

    I have recently upgraded from an iPhone 5s to an iPhone 7+. Everything copied over from my old phone except for my notes on Outlook. I have spoken to Apple and Applecare and my phone is set up correctly. Why did my notes not copy over!

    Why cannot I open my outlook ?

  • Chiranjeevi Khanal

    I cannot open my email in hotmail why ? Is this a global problem or my problem ?

  • Gary Springell

    I cannot get my hotmail ‘sent’ messages to show up in it’s folder. I am using Android 7 software l have deleted about 3k emails that were in the sent folder that were from 2004 until 2014. I done this as I assumed that there wasn’t enough space in my Samsung 7. As my old S5 only retained emails for the last to weeks. However this has had no effect, I have tried switching the the ‘sync folders’ on and off & switched from phone priority to phone priority, with no effect.
    Anyone have any ideas? Gary

    I can’t get Hotmail to load. It takes forever for anything to show up on the page. The page just loads as you try to put an email address or name in. Forget actually TYPING a message. Page just continually loads until the cursor jumps way down on the page and you can’t move up back up where you were typing. Total junk. I opened a gmail account and everything is fine. Now to let all my contacts know I’m off of Hotmail.

    Do you have problems with the Hotmail (Outlook) login on Wednesday November 29, 2017?

    If there’s a global outage, or issues local to USA, UK, and other countries then they will be revealed within status updates below. Also, leave details about problems you have or if the email service is down today for you.

    When Microsoft offers official statements in regard to Outlook, or Hotmail, problems then you can be sure to find them below.

  • Mariya

    The transition from Hotmail to Outlook hasn’t been without problems, in fact there’s been a few outages with users reporting Hotmail or Outlook has gone down throughout this year at different times.

    In most circumstances this will just be old issues not lasting very long, although some issues will be prolonged with Outlook login problems being the most highlighted.

    If you made the move from Hotmail to Outlook, then you might not be happy since the automatic switch and not having the ability to switch back to Hotmail again.

    In fact, we have seen a few people complain and think the service hasn’t improved since the changes to their inbox.

  • Anaya51

    I go to send an email and it tells me to re-enter my password in my settings…I’ve re-set it 3 times and each time it verifies as logged in (on my settings) but when I go to my email and try to send something it keeps coming back with the same “please verify your password settings” soooooo frustrating!

    “Something went wrong and we can’t sign you in right now. Please try again later.
    The Microsoft account login server has detected too many repeated authentication attempts. Please wait a moment and try again.”

    This has been like this for the last 3 days.

    If you have an iPhone, go to the App Store and download the Outlook app. It isn’t doing the annoying refresh thing there. But it is on every single other device I’ve tried, even Safari on my iPhone is doing it.
