  • RyanCartiers RyanCartier (@RyanCartiers) reported from Calgary, Alberta

    @Outlook Also, in app support FAILED to resolve issue and closed ticket for 2nd time. How do I reopen? Why is it taking 3 months to resolve Feb update issues? #customerexperience

  • bobbigmac Bob (@bobbigmac) reported

    @pauldambra @Outlook I think we're at the same point with Chromium (and maybe Gecko too) now as we were when IE was such a mess of software tumours that Firefox basically had to exist to fix some of the problems

  • bobbigmac Bob (@bobbigmac) reported

    @pauldambra @Outlook I spent most of last week trying to debug cross-domain cookie issues and saw this error a lot... I'd bet you a cookie it's something to do with adblock (or whatever variant you use). There's been a lot of subtle config changes in what they count as 'acceptable trackers' lately

  • esteban 𝗲𝘀𝘁𝗲𝗯𝗮𝗻 (@esteban) reported

    @Outlook you guys seriously need to fix the usability on the web, clicking "j" sends to the "junk" instead of moving to older messages, also, clicking on the subject doesn't guarantee you are opening an email, you might be deleting that by accident.

  • bobbigmac Bob (@bobbigmac) reported

    @pauldambra @Outlook The cors errors suggest ad blocker (or browser feature if using say Brave) is blocking cross site cookies, allowing them for the parent domain might help. The other error harder to infer but service worker might be being stopped for too much work. Maybe just a v large message

    I have not been able to receive emails in a week @Outlook I have reached out several times. What is the problem. Can i speak to someone?

  • amigus Adam Migus (@amigus) reported

    I've been messaging in @MicrosoftTeams so much that I have been writing emails in @Outlook and hitting 'Enter' thinking I've sent the message. An hour later--when I think, "why didn't I get a response yet," I go back, facepalm, and hit 'Send.' *sigh* #Microsoft problems...

  • NTorr17 n.torr17 (@NTorr17) reported

    @Outlook was having a normal day then outlook desktop app disconnected, wouldn’t accept PW (yes checked the spelling), co-workers also booted off and we’re now using the Web Browser version. Is the app down???

  • Syenta1 Syenta (@Syenta1) reported

    Dear @Outlook why has your latest update broken my email client and stopped me being able to read emails? When will you fix this because I need to get my work done and while we have this situation I can't. Thanks in advance

  • CasualSaints Michael D. Austin (@CasualSaints) reported

    @Outlook @kgiokaris Microsoft Outlook: Outlook 2019 is down for the count and your short-link goes exactly no where.

  • christymarx #BlackLivesMatter Christy Marx (@christymarx) reported

    @Outlook Most recent update has broken Outlook. The from and subject fields show up, but neither text nor images show up in the body of the email. How to fix?

  • ivancolaco26 Capt. Ivan Colaço (@ivancolaco26) reported

    @SeasickBoss @Outlook Wasted 5 hours trying to fix the problem. Anyway, just did a restore on my Dell and it is working again. Yay!

  • greglow Greg Low (@greglow) reported

    @cbryden @Outlook There's a fix rolling out in next few hours. You can either rollback as per article or use web version in meantime.

  • BR3NDA potato enthusiast (@BR3NDA) reported

    @vivsterNZ @Outlook Have they announced the outage anywhere?

  • JennyHuang Jenny Huang (@JennyHuang) reported

    Does anyone use @Microsoft @Outlook for emails and having problems seeing their email's body text because they are blank😱? Called Microsoft customer service and not able to get support right away. Need to do some runarounds😬 What a day! Hope yours is going alright.

  • thedevdrawer Dev Drawer (@thedevdrawer) reported

    If you are experiencing the @Outlook blank message issue try this. Open a command prompt and run the following, it will roll back your update.: "C:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\ClickToRun\officec2rclient.exe" /update user updatetoversion=16.0.13901.20462

  • CatharineB9 Catharine B (@CatharineB9) reported

    @Outlook @GCBlue I’m having problems too- please help!

  • vivsterNZ Vivian Chandra (she/her) 🏴‍☠️🏳️‍🌈 (@vivsterNZ) reported

    The @Outlook outage this morning showed the world that there really is two types of people. The first type immediately calls their IT people (I live with a MSP dude and he was on calls ALL morning) and the second type just went to the browser, and continued working

  • NathanJDowd Nathan Dowd (@NathanJDowd) reported

    Hey @outlook @MSFT365Status when the patch is sent out, will a simple pc restart apply it and fix the problems?

  • DesertIsleSQL Ginger Grant (@DesertIsleSQL) reported

    @tgatte @Outlook @WindowsUpdate It's not you. Outlook is "having issues"
