It looks like Hotmail is down in the UK today, according to reports from those trying to sign in and finding the service not working correctly. Within the last hour we’ve received a number of reports about problems with Hotmail and Outlook email services being either down or not working. There’s clearly issues considering the feedback and tweets being shared.
One user stated, “My Hotmail is down. I have no issues logging in with Outlook, but it mentions firstname.lastname@example.org isn’t working today. It has been unavailable for a while now”. Another added, “This is a big problem and I’ve seen a lot of complaints over the last few hours. Please can we have a little feedback, so we know when our mail will be back up”.
You can see some tweets below revealing such problems and of course we’d love to hear from our readers as well. There’s a few business users getting really frustrated as well and they certainly want to know when these issues will be fixed, as you can expect with the importance of business emails”.

Have you had any problems accessing Hotmail today and if so, what location are you in? As you can see with the tweets above, it looks like the problem has been going on for a few hours. The error message being displayed states, “Outlook.com not working, Please try later”.
Update: The official Outlook Twitter account left the message below just a few minutes ago, so you now know the problems are being worked on at least.
@knivesinmyeye Please know that we are working to resolve this matter as quickly as possible! Thank you for your patience! ^EH
