(Headline) Microsoft Outlook Email Activities Outage Affects Businesses Worldwide
Recent reports have indicated that a Microsoft Outlook Email Activities Outage is affecting thousands of businesses and individuals worldwide. The issue has caused users to experience intermittent disruptions when attempting to send, receive, and read emails. Those who have been affected are located in multiple countries and from multiple time zones.
Microsoft has confirmed that the issue is with the Outlook Email Service and suggests that users try restarting their devices to help reset the service and hopefully restore the system. Adding to this, Microsoft has also stated that they are actively working to identify and address the issue, though no estimated time of resolution has been given.
From what has been reported, the outage has caused issues with multiple Outlook functions such as calendar management, contacts, and shared folders among others. Microsoft has responded by suggesting that users try alternative services, and even noted that an alternative to Outlook is available at no additional cost to those affected.
Businesses both large and small have been affected by the outage, and it is likely that any valuable emails left unread during the outage may have been lost, along with any documents requiring a response. Businesses have had to adapt quickly in hope of continuing to communicate efficiently.
As the outage continues with no foreseeable resolution, businesses and individual users have had to rely on alternative services, with the hope that their emails have been transferred properly so as to not cause disruption to day-to-day operations. Microsoft’s official statement indicated that “We understand our customers depend on Exchange Online for their critical communication and collaboration needs” and “We are actively working with impacted customers to provide additional guidance and assistance”.
It is yet unclear as to what has caused the outage, but the issues appear to be affecting a wide range of industries and users worldwide. Microsoft Outlook continues to look into the outage in hopes of resolving the situation as soon as possible.
