Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
  • gsnilk1 Blue Shell the 1% (@gsnilk1) reported

    @ShawnInArizona The problem with this handmaid's tale outlook is that it's a way of preventing women from working. If a boss is unable to do a 1:1 with a woman, it stifles her professional development. If a journalist cannot be embedded in a campaign, they'll need to replace her, etc.

  • DanM_Chicago Dan Marcus (@DanM_Chicago) reported

    @MeikTranel @jimholmes @johnbartlett333 @SwiftOnSecurity Seems to be how Outlook was created. It constantly polls the Exchange (SQL) server to keep things updated. Outlook is heavily network dependent. The documentation I had read talked about the item count in some of the folders.

  • PneumaSP Sam (@PneumaSP) reported

    @Quoasie @y0r0zura @sabishides @cameronm4rk @havoc4261 @mcfcharliee We weren’t though. We calmly resolved the problem quickly. Wasn’t dragged out or anything I don’t see how that’s an outlook.

  • IzzBatko ‘bela b. (@IzzBatko) reported from Chicago, Illinois

    I used to let everything get to me and bring me down for days; nothing better has happened in the past year than learning to brush it all off and maintain a positive outlook regarless the shit life throws at me.

  • bmwilson1978 G=C800:5 (@bmwilson1978) reported

    @flanakin @AzureSupport It's an issue with my subscriptions being orphaned. "Your account and subscription was disconnected because of its existence of our Former Platform (Mint) on your account profile or if there were any changes done on Outlook profile (eg: adding an alias on the Microsoft Account)."

  • EHHowardUK EH Howard (@EHHowardUK) reported

    @northam_robert I have 4 websites. I must cut down, but it is kind of part of the day job. Given the choice, I’d probably stick with an fb page these days. However, I do prefer my private email address, rather than gmail, or hotmail type.

  • fastbreconomics AN (@fastbreconomics) reported

    I kinda take issue with the idea that Tommy Sheppard has only done the "easy" stuff so far. Nothing he has done has been worldbeating but all offseason we heard that the Wizards situation is the worst in the league and he took steps to make the outlook objectively better.

  • wifisbadinhell big butter (@wifisbadinhell) reported

    @johnbartlett333 @SwiftOnSecurity If your using to outlook client it gives me issues like that all the time I've switch my outlook emails to Microsoft360 and it's in browser online outlook

  • optilude Martin Aspeli (@optilude) reported

    @laurencerowe It’s a locked down exchange server which means I need to do it on the local machine (a Mac with Outlook).

  • the1stefan Stefan Green (@the1stefan) reported

    @plusnethelp For the past two days now! I have been unable to download my email using Outlook 2010 and I keep on getting the same error message of "Operation timed out waiting for a response from (POP) server.

  • ambertrevail Amber Eggers (@ambertrevail) reported

    @mbggrg @itsericathomas Fair enough. I accept your thoughts. But to call me delusional would not be accurate. I don’t make decisions based off of my feelings. I see you do. No way you did the research and still have the same outlook. No issue. We are all entitled to our opinion.

  • BrendenMVillar1 Brenden M. Villarreal (@BrendenMVillar1) reported

    @AnneMunition @AlinityTwitch You all are making a big deal out of nothing. Like WTF! The twitter mob macerating as the morality police are at it again with their wholesome outlook on other people’s lives. Her cat is clearly fine. Clam down!

  • PauliesSleepers Paulie's Sleepers (@PauliesSleepers) reported

    @chalkwhite101 @realRYNOS More and more Sanders outlook scares me. -early more than mild hammy -committee coaching tendencies -iffy pass pro -fumble issues -tendency to bounce outside which has indicated NFL faliure in the past. Hard pass.

  • averag3alex1s Alexis 💋 (@averag3alex1s) reported

    Mother ******* wanna wonder why im ao down on myself, have no positive outlook on my life, or anything, and this is exactly why

  • dylanw Dylan Wilbanks, Human Grumpy Cat (@dylanw) reported

    @nerdseyeview My lord, it's completely changed my outlook on biking. “I can’t get up this massive incline” turned to “I am going to turn the motor down, I should get something out of riding this.”

  • adewale_afolabi adewale afolabi (@adewale_afolabi) reported

    @Intergrity56 Further the people's nonchalant and disturbingly over optimistic outlook towards life is just point blank annoying. The belief in a supernatural power that can only fix Nigeria makes me weak. The concept of personal responsibility and self determination is completely alien

  • dlacalle_IA Daniel Lacalle (@dlacalle_IA) reported

    Mexico's financial and economic outlook is deteriorating rapidly; AMLO is failing to address key issues The PEMEX strategy plan puts the company close to a rating cut and weakening growth and investment outlook are likely to affect the overall country credit score.

  • kyla_sandwith Kyla Sandwith (@kyla_sandwith) reported

    @Outlook I’ve been trying for 3 days to get some help with outlook live. Some emails are not being received and some sent emails are not being received. Cannot get support to respond consistently- it’s been over 12 hours since I responded to them and the issue is not fixed.

  • hesedgal Bibi (@hesedgal) reported

    @tarirokamuti @Trends_Central @misscailah @MwanaWachihera @adangarembiz @HBiliardh @Wamagaisa The problem is you assume that if someone is trying to have a positive outlook on the country they're burying their head in the sand. The issues of poor governance & corruption are there for everyone to see.

  • chaotichero4 Reece Coldham (@chaotichero4) reported

    @Outlook can I get some help. Made an account for me and a friend for business use and somethings not working. I can rest the pw because its say not enough info. But it's new. Please live chat me, no bots please

  • GSWnature GS Ward (@GSWnature) reported

    @CollettEventing I’m sorry for your disappointment and such a split second error. Thank you for looking forward and your positive outlook. Take care. Safe travel home.

  • theprivata "That Chopper Guy" (@theprivata) reported

    @TeamAhsoka He does this all the time, I appreciate his positive outlook and I even share it but boil it down and he just told us that JJ made a set, JJ likes it, it could be interesting. That could be applied to anything lol

  • DemigodSparrow cátaleya (@DemigodSparrow) reported

    gustong gusto ko magkaron ng positive outlook sa life ko pero why does it feel like ppl from my past are trying really hard to bring me down

  • HitherToFore Randbrick (@HitherToFore) reported

    So if he seems like a robot weirdo from another planet, it's because he's a madman with a terrible, depressing outlook on what we human beings can do, and on what we deserve.

  • wesderby Wes Derby (@wesderby) reported from Columbus, Ohio

    @MicrosoftHelps He did call. Took a little while, but he got it fixed. Turned out there was a problem between outlook and one of the display drivers on my computer. He had to run outlook back to a previous update.

  • YvonneBurford Yvonne Burford (@YvonneBurford) reported

    @oldfarmhorace @ricklowe08 @pvbsc1 @KMFBrown @guernconners @Louisa_J_22 @jondwbuckland @deputybaz @LoveitJohn @pipbarr @GsyBlueDonkey @McMacaque There were a few who would say "I don't usually agree with X but on this issue I do" (which is how govgg used to work) but many would think "I don't like X so I cannot agree with *anything* she says". There's no way forward with that outlook.

  • gordonkphil the real GK Phortescue (@gordonkphil) reported

    @Outlook not working for over a day now...what a eff up outlook is...

  • tim1967td timCOYI (@tim1967td) reported

    @Johnjam10John @1997HWHU21 Strange outlook. Only allowed to be positive and not entitled to an opinion. I think John has the issues here.

  • ranjitrana4u Ranjit Rana (@ranjitrana4u) reported

    Among all the issues that have been giving the industry a negative outlook, there has been a silver lining with Pakistan Airspace Management opening its airspace for aircrafts coming from India for international destinations and vice versa.

  • JayDeSi295 Jay DeSimone (@JayDeSi295) reported

    @a_h_reaume Dan Savage challenges the idea that a “successful relationship” is one that ends with the death of one of the partners and is a proponent of your outlook, that relationships don’t have to end badly. That myth self reinforces as people create problems as an excuse to end things.

  • davemac63 DaveLeMac (@davemac63) reported

    @MSFT365Status my company is down in the UK, with no access to Client Outlook, Admn portal or web mail, but mobile version is working - help

  • rondoburlesca Constant Lambert (@rondoburlesca) reported

    I have the most annoying technical problem in the history of @Microsoft (arguable!). In Outlook, if I open emails or calendar entries I quickly lose direct access back to the inbox or calendar screen - have to boot up a new app instance to get back, which quickly clogs my laptop

  • kchandra58 Chandrashekara K (@kchandra58) reported

    There is no unemployment problem, growth is robust, outlook is bright and yet these fake stories keep appearing. Wonder who crunches numbers.

  • tabathcat tabscat (@tabathcat) reported

    Lets say this in plain English,ISLAM is a problem in this country. Even if you ignore Halal slaughter, FGM,marrying off underage daughters to foreign cousins, total misogynistic outlook, bigamy , antigay stance etc - you still have the INDUSTRIAL SCALE **** of white girls.

    @999DannyX @DJSCHEME_ False. In that frame of mind nothing is funny and everything is offensive. What a terrible outlook on life

  • robertemack2 Mack Daddy (@robertemack2) reported

    @WalshFreedom It won’t help improve your irrational outlook on real issues

  • Afro_Sakurai Afro Sakurai (@Afro_Sakurai) reported

    @JohnBeaufort9 And I've said the word countless times, and while context does matter I feel like in the past I've been pretty ignorant towards the problem just being a blind follower of some of my "friends". So I'm tryin to challenge the outlook I grew up wit atm.

  • calumsxmara ✨Hails ~ Ash & Jillian’s day! 2 & 71✨ (@calumsxmara) reported

    I shouldn’t have even had a 50% positive outlook. All it does is tear me down in the end.

  • raja1260 raja1260🇮🇳 (@raja1260) reported

    @mayamadhava @ShefVaidya @mariawirth1 @Voice_For_India @fgautier26 @RajivMessage @davidfrawleyved The problem is media is not ok with even basic hindu rights. The right to have our own religious places makes others nervous. We need more media coverage with positive outlook.

  • sdaswani Susheel Daswani (@sdaswani) reported

    @mitali Ugh tell me about it! @gmail has slowed down in the past few years but @Outlook is a complete pig and woefully unusable. But I must soldier on....

  • VeryWhiteGuy Don’t do “truth isnt truth” to me (@VeryWhiteGuy) reported

    @KaraNextWeek I’m hilariously the only employee using Outlook email client, but all email is really Google back end. So I wouldn’t have seen an outage

  • shaktavist Shak The Hack (@shaktavist) reported

    @hacks4pancakes Genuine requests from bank advisor not sure if anyone else has experienced these yet. 1. Whatsapp me the docs 2. Send the docs to my hotmail address because my work account is not working.

  • RavenEffect Steven Murphy (@RavenEffect) reported

    Well you've got real problems if this is a test. Do what every other business does and take comparable data into account. Gears 4 launch day capacity should have been the minimalist outlook considering this is free to Games Pass subs.

  • PJM_Says PJM ∞ (@PJM_Says) reported

    if you have a problem with those who are kind, happy and have a big positive outlook...If you have a problem with genuine, earnest hard working people...if you have a problem with love ... then get out of my sphere, unfollow me. I do not want you anywhere near me or mine.

  • OriginOfBoredom Just Edward. (@OriginOfBoredom) reported

    Our outlook was down for 3 hours in work today so the IT people sent an email to say that emails weren’t working... That’s 4+ years of college down the drain!

  • wesderby Wes Derby (@wesderby) reported

    Yes! Finally got the Outlook issue sorted. Apparently, the latest update was clashing with a display driver, so the tech had to roll Outlook back to a previous update. Now, it works.

  • merps4248 Merps4248 (Grinning Goat) (@merps4248) reported

    Commuting in a big city just kills my outlook for humanity. On a daily level you just get exposed to aggressive, vengeful, petty, and overall terrible human beings who actually go out of their way to try and drag you down with them. Ugh. At least it’s Friday I guess 😑

  • JustinStowell Justin Stowell (@JustinStowell) reported

    @_dswarden Microsoft Outlook problems

  • roh_thyoni po (@roh_thyoni) reported

    tbh i also have this kind of mindset like in every situation i am in i dont see it as a huge problem but instead i see it in a positive way, i’ve always talked abt this to some of my friends starting when i stanned jbj i try to always see the positive outlook in life

  • skyelowry Skye Lowry (@skyelowry) reported

    @Outlook No problem. I think I'm the only person who wants to manage my email that way. I like expiry dates!

  • factchecking201 factchecking2018 (@factchecking201) reported

    @TheronMcGrew @BImpala65 @TLeann_75 @JayCaruso It's his foreign policy outlook. Also, those interviews weren't selectively edited. They literally played a constant rolling clip. She was an f'n moron, which is why she stepped down from office and why her family are a mess. She proved herself to be an idiot on the biggest stage

  • elxnah el ☼ (@elxnah) reported

    Y’all please help give me the confidence to send this meeting request, I can’t let Outlook down now that they’ve folllwed up 😭😭😭

  • FlamKingTez Flammy Davis Jr. (@FlamKingTez) reported

    @sherrisilkk There is nothing in this life that’s free, my outlook on life now is just making sure my boys will have an even playing field and won’t be looked down or frown upon because they’re black...

  • YalreadyKnowIt Scumble (@YalreadyKnowIt) reported

    @Outlook @Haggerra down here too. can't send or recieve

  • FranklinU1 FranklinU (@FranklinU1) reported

    @OyeyemiRafiu @extracode @MobilePunch I guess it's hearsay your email service operates from a server since I'm 100% certain you haven't been allowed into a Yahoo or hotmail server room.

  • Tristantinople_ Tristan Hopkins (@Tristantinople_) reported

    @LonesomeLionMan This is a very good outlook. My first thoughts were wondering what was actually wrong with it, as if there was something I wasn’t seeing other than the CGI being how it is. Other than that I don’t really see any issues.

  • CSUSM_IITS CSUSM IITS (@CSUSM_IITS) reported from San Marcos, California

    Microsoft successfully repaired the communication issue that was causing the Outlook impact. We have confirmed that the service has been restored. Thank your fo your patience! #iits #csusm #techsupport

  • macrocosm_nomad Dave Willis (@macrocosm_nomad) reported

    @MicrosoftHelps Good evening, I am experiencing issues with Outlook, a lot of emails (important ones), are going into the spam folder, inducing ones about a job interview (found just in time), I have marked as not spam, but they're still going into there.
