Microsoft’s Outlook email service goes down after ‘outage’ error

Microsoft’s Outlook email service has been hit by service issues with many users unable to access their inboxes.

The issue comes on a day that many are working from home due to rail and Underground strikes.

Microsoft has confirmed the problem and said it is working to fix it, with no other services currently appearing to be impacted.

According to Microsoft’s own service status website, some Outlook users ‘may be unable to access their mailboxes via any connection method’ and may encounter ‘delays sending, receiving or accessing email messages’.

In a statement on the site, Microsoft said: ‘We’re continuing to analyse service monitoring telemetry to identify the next troubleshooting steps to mitigate the impact.’

The company added that the issue was specific to some users in Europe.

Earlier today, hundreds of websites went down following a major outage at content delivery company Cloudflare.

Anyone visiting websites such as Discord, Shopify, Peloton and JustEat were met with a ‘500 Internal Server error’ message.

Cloudflare has since said that problem has now been resolved.
