Outlook Hotmail outage on March 7 with login down

By Alan Ng - Mar 7, 2017

We have a word of warning to all email users now, as it looks like there is a major Outlook or Hotmail outage today, as of 12pm UK time on March 7th 2017.

We were alerted to possible Hotmail problems today over on our outage page and since then we have been flooded with complaints coming in from users across the world – most of whom are asking why they can’t log into Hotmail today.


To repeat this appears to be a global Hotmail outage, with sign in down in the UK, US, Europe and other parts of the world.

So far, the Outlook Twitter page has said nothing about their entire operations being down so hopefully that changes within the next couple of hours.

For now, leave us a comment if your Hotmail is not working right now so we can see how widespread this is. Are you fed up with the silence whenever things go wrong?
