Hotmail login down March 21 with Live 503 error

By Alan Ng - Mar 21, 2017

Another day, another bout of Hotmail login problems to tell you about unfortunately. At the time of writing, we can confirm that there appears to be a serious Hotmail outage as service is down on March 21.

If you try to access the Hotmail / Outlook login page, you will just see the following screen which prevents you from getting into your email inbox.

hotmail-error-http-error-503

As you can see, there is a recurring “login.live.com page isn’t working” message, while it also notes a problem with Hotmail / Outlook HTTP Error 503 as well.

We can’t be the only ones seeing this at the moment and we can also confirm that Hotmail is not working on both iOS and on desktop.

How serious is this problem and is service down for you right now? Please leave a comment below so we can determine how widespread this is.

    Do you think now would be a great time to create a MIRROR gmail account and have all your hotmail forwarded to it? Granted, the gmail account email will fill up fast, just visit it every once in while to delete what you don’t want.
