    @Outlook I have been trying for days to regain access to an old e-mail account. The problem is I forgot my password and the recovery e-mail was with AOL who deactivated the account. I have tried a number of times to fill out the recovery form but get rejected every time. Any help?

    @Void_The_Rebel @Outlook Having same issues

  • zefie zefie (@zefie) reported

    Just heard from a client that @Outlook subscribes to the UCEPROTECT scam, so if you have a server with any hosts that UCEPROTECT dislikes, despite how well you configured yours, your emails will be screwed. UCEPROTECT was exposed before COVID, fix this please. @MicrosoftHelps

    @huf_brian @Outlook I had similar issue but the support service wasn't helpful not until I was referred to coderjeni_dev on Instagram. She is helpful

  • RomireTV Romire (@RomireTV) reported from Gladstone Central, State of Queensland

    Hey @MicrosoftAU @Outlook my inbox is capped (wasn't aware there was a thing like that) and old messages won't delete out, any idea how to fix this?

  • JTFouquier Jennifer Fouquier (@JTFouquier) reported

    @caplansteve One issue is there is a problem with @Outlook and list-serves. For whatever reason the default is to reply to the sender and the list-serve. That should NOT be the default when using “reply”. It’s caused privacy issues on my campus and needs to be fixed.

  • bicakci_mustafa Mustafa Bıçakcı (@bicakci_mustafa) reported

    @Outlook still sends me emails and documents from people I don't know because our surname or e-mail is a bit similar. So I have access to information from the bill such as name, address and even time and duration of internet usage. Isn't this a serious privacy issue?

  • MarkusWerle So-called Artist 㡹 (@MarkusWerle) reported

    @Google I have 2 accounts. I can log in via browser and read e-mails. Both accounts share the same confirmation phone number. I was able to connect the first one with @Outlook via the web based login dialog after multiple attempts. 2nd account: no chance. Screenshot above.

  • jaymelbe PhD. Jérémie Melchior (❤MAUI) 🇺🇦 (@jaymelbe) reported

    I don't know what's wrong with @Outlook but it's getting worse! I can't add any email account in it.... although they are all Microsoft 365 accounts. Only 1 of the added email account still sync ... the others are all broken and there's absolutely no information about why! HELP

  • aelessard Ashley (@aelessard) reported

    @Outlook No, I am still getting the error if I try to get the code via text. If I put in the wrong last 4 of a phone #, I get the normal message that says “if **** matches the last 4 digits, we’ll send you a code.” But when I put in the correct last 4, I get “we couldn’t send the code.”

  • AngelOfGuidance A. T. (@AngelOfGuidance) reported

    @Outlook @semihmasat I have the same exact problem and it's getting out of control not only are they in the junk box now they are in the inbox and sometimes doubles .

  • itsmeLinyela Linyela (@itsmeLinyela) reported

    @Outlook why I can’t receive any email anymore? I can send them, I’ve tested it. My boss told me she send me an email twice which I haven’t received. I tried to send myself an email from another account and didn’t receive it either. Have the issue on both browser and iphone app.

  • canadagraphs Canadagraphs 🇺🇦 (@canadagraphs) reported

    Hey @Outlook What happened to the up & down arrows for emails? How do I go from the current email I am on, to the next one in the folder without going all the way back into the inbox folder? @MicrosoftHelps
