Outlook Hotmail outage on March 7 with login down

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.

hotmail-outage

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?

Sign problems in Greece too! Am using stock mail app in iPhone 6S Plus. Solution for me was to delete stock mail app (you can do this on iOS 10.0 +) and re-install it!

I can log in, but since the hijacking upgrade from an older Outlook, I have ZERO people in my contacts! I’m using Win 7, latest Firefox. Any ideas to get them back?
