Hotmail, Outlook down emails not sending on Sept 18

It looks like there are big problems with Hotmail and Outlook at the moment for millions of users across the globe and no sign of things being back to normal any time soon.

We were alerted to this when our Hotmail and Outlook problems page received numerous complaints this morning with users saying that Hotmail service is completely down on September 18 as of 11am UK time.

From what we can see from our tests, we can send out emails but we cannot receive any emails back and we have a feeling this is happening to everyone else right now.


As we investigate further, please give us your Hotmail or Outlook status right now. Are you able to send messages but not receive as well or are you having different problems? Let us know.

We will chase the Outlook, Hotmail team for an answer.
