  • danieldogeanu Daniel Dogeanu (@danieldogeanu) reported

    Dear @Outlook, I changed my Gmail password, and now I can't use #Outlook at all to read my emails, because it can't connect to the server. Is it really that hard for you guys to PROMPT for a damn password or to ask to re-login? 🤬 #email #microsoft

  • MattPatresi Matt Patresi (@MattPatresi) reported

    @Outlook - I've tried accessing my mail from both browser and apps from about 5 different sources (and browsers) - the problem is the same. -I'm not getting emails from any of my contacts.

  • el_jasoon Jason Freeman (@el_jasoon) reported

    @divinetechygirl @Outlook We have a similar issue and not on VPN. We get the "Need Password" thing. But when you click it, a window appears for a split second and then disappears. You can click it as many times as you want, but it keeps doing the same thing. We suspect it has something to do with MFA.

    @aldoyh @Outlook Pst for the offline use, ost is the caching file when you connect to the email server.

  • OlderYetBolder Ruth Winden (@OlderYetBolder) reported

    @MicrosoftUK @Outlook - for the first time in 15 years, I can't access ANY of my emails. This is the message: "The page cannot be displayed because an internal server error has occurred". I tried everything I can think of. Apparently the issue lies with you. Help please.

  • JL89886699 JL (@JL89886699) reported

    @Outlook It's an organization acc. I was using the folder for a while but ended up moving everything in it to a different folder. The issue is that I can still move emails into that old folder, but it was removed from the left column. I'll empty out my trash the next time I check.

  • sean_ruddy_1 Sean Ruddy (@sean_ruddy_1) reported

    @Outlook 2/2 all you do is keeping sending me the same link for the help page but it’s no help. Surely knowing the password, the previous password, DOB, postcode and answer to security is sufficient! It’s my account! How can a company of your size not help with such a simple issue?

  • sean_ruddy_1 Sean Ruddy (@sean_ruddy_1) reported

    @Outlook You really don’t want to help do you!? I rarely send emails from my account so I can’t fill in the recent emails sent and EXACT subject line questions. However the account is linked to all my impeoftnat accounts. I see dozens of people have had the same issue. 1/2

  • some_loser Some Loser (@some_loser) reported

    @Outlook It seems to come and go, earlier today it was an issue but it seems to be working now. Same story yesterday

  • DJGaryBaldy DJGaryBaldy (@DJGaryBaldy) reported

    @Outlook It seems to have resolved itself. Guess a server somewhere had a hiccup.

  • njsdanrich dan richardson at 🏡 (@njsdanrich) reported

    So - @Outlook Outlook updated app today and my hitherto perfectly syncing gmail account now isn’t. Hmm. Tried “reset” no good. Have you broken summat?

  • dawnbennett1480 Dawn Benbett (@dawnbennett1480) reported

    @Outlook Hello! Having trouble, my outlook app isn't syncing with my emails that are coming through? Have deleted account and added it again and also uninstalled app and downloaded again and still not working. Thank you.

  • mjfrombuffalo MJfromBuffalo (@mjfrombuffalo) reported

    @Outlook Serious question: I get the emails your system sends that says "Clutter moved new and different messages." These notification emails all go into Spambox and won't stay in my Inbox when I move them no matter what rules I set up. How can I fix?

  • AliciaEvelynB Alicia Burke (@AliciaEvelynB) reported

    @Outlook My father’s visually impaired & spends most of his day on outlook so this is pretty important for us if you can please advise - representatives try the same thing, keep us on the line for hours & then say there’s nothing they can do, they don’t know what the problem is

  • AliciaEvelynB Alicia Burke (@AliciaEvelynB) reported

    @Outlook we’ve spent countless hours (12+) with your support representatives over this past week to try fix a gmail/outlook desktop synch issue to no avail. It works online but stopped connecting on the desktop app.

  • BethSciberras Bethany Sciberras (@BethSciberras) reported from City of Kingston upon Hull, England

    @Outlook Its really important that she has access to her email, how do we sort this problem out?

  • ashutoshanand_5 Ashutosh Anand (@ashutoshanand_5) reported from PETROL BUNK ORR, State of Karnataka

  • TeknikPappa TeknikPappa (@TeknikPappa) reported

    @Outlook Please fix notifications for shared calendars instead, the function is pretty useless without working notifications.

  • 921_fer NANDÖ /\ BLM (@921_fer) reported

    @Outlook mobile ******* sucks, fix you’re platform, I missed a meeting! ******* PF

  • DJGaryBaldy DJGaryBaldy (@DJGaryBaldy) reported

    UH OH whats going on there @Outlook says it can't find my username or mailbox I hope its just outlook having problems

  • robert_schliffe Robert Schliffe (@robert_schliffe) reported

    @Outlook I'm trying to get in contact with technical support. Every time I go through you virtual support window it states that I need to speak with someone to address the problem and provides a link that states to "Email us" but the link just opens outlook without an email address.

  • josush Josu (@josush) reported

    @Jaime_Rivera @Outlook Outlook on Mac just sucks, I deal with that error every day

  • dbarcene David Barcene (@dbarcene) reported

    @Outlook Your software is such a piece of garbage. I am starting my own email server as of today.

  • cheeto81 thedude (@cheeto81) reported

    @Outlook the new search location is awful and @Microsoft ignorantly lies that the new location is preferred according to some bs data. move the search back and fix the bugs before you lose the respect of everyone that uses outlook. declining it on uservoice is infuriating

  • sd_architect Sanjeev Sharma (@sd_architect) reported

    Aargh. @apple Mail is become crappy and slow. Time to get a real email tool I think. I have used @airmailer in the past and liked it somewhat. Any other suggestions? @Outlook any good on the Mac?

  • BradinTN Riding out ISEolation (@BradinTN) reported

    Running into a really weird issue with the @Outlook app (version 4.2024.4) on my phone (Android 10). After a few days, messages no longer show any content in the body of emails I receive. It starts working again if I reboot the phone.

    Running into a really weird issue with the @Outlook app (version 4.2024.4) on my phone (Android 10). After a couple of weeks, messages no longer show any content in the body of emails I receive. It starts working again if I reboot the phone.
