  • chrisburgeuk Chris Burge (@chrisburgeuk) reported

    @Outlook @EmmaLouise394 There are more than enough complaints about this specific issue on twitter that you should have diagnosed the problem by now. Sort it out already, this is affecting a large number of people, so please fix it

  • YermaP Pshizzle (@YermaP) reported

    @Outlook I’m absolutely disgusted at the lack of customer service and incompetence on your part. You had an outage problem on your outlook app that wouldn’t let me log in and blocked my account. Now I can’t get into my email and I’m blocked. **** you

  • NDrabiak Nadia Drabiak (@NDrabiak) reported

    @vicsicetea @Outlook Same. Even tried to log in via my PC...nope not working, yet again...shocker...

  • Drgreen51 Drgreen5 (@Drgreen51) reported

    @Outlook @JoelBaldwin91 I think thousands of people are having this issue. But as usual your customer service is appalling.

  • fasihahmed Fasih A. Rana (@fasihahmed) reported

    @Outlook @nicmurrell Please fix the iOS signin issues. Having to reenter my password every 5 minutes is frustrating.

  • UltimateKGB kevin bowler (@UltimateKGB) reported

    @Outlook @JoelBaldwin91 You keep on asking this if everyone. Surely you know this is happening as it is getting reported to you by loads of people. Fix it.

  • JuanBlaz3 Juan Blaze (@JuanBlaz3) reported

    @Outlook Hello, I can't login to Outlook. I tried the app and online. I keep getting a server error (500)

  • 1samer_ . (@1samer_) reported

    @Outlook I have a problem with sending emails and verify number doesn’t sent to my phone can you solve this problem please ?

  • Nican Nican, Snickers-Puppet (@Nican) reported

    @SQLAllFather @Outlook The constant trend of "we develop software to outsmart users on what they want to see" really annoys me at work too. Because there is always someone pitching an idea on how to make software "smarter", and it is really hard to shoot down such an apparently ambitious "ML" dream.

  • TheRealDjSDG “ŚhåwñDøń” 😈 (@TheRealDjSDG) reported

    @Outlook FIX EMAIL NOW

  • JigsawPuzzle58 Presto Chango (@JigsawPuzzle58) reported

    @Outlook @MicrosoftHelps Why am I repeatedly getting locked out of my own account!!? Just created it yesterday and been made to change password 2 times already today. Unable to use the outlook app on android or Windows or login through the Web. Aarrgghhh

  • abz_06 Abbie (@abz_06) reported

    @IamAmaka @Outlook @AppleSupport Looking through Twitter, This has clearly been an issue with many people for well over a month... shouldn’t you have found a fix yet? Or at least acknowledge there is a problem instead of the constant auto generated responses...

  • Matt_Smith_1983 Matthew (@Matt_Smith_1983) reported

    Oi @Outlook @AppleSupport any chance of fixing the issue I’ve had since the last iOS update? Having to sign in to my Outlook account every day.

  • JB3658 JB365 (@JB3658) reported

    @MyNameIsMurray @Outlook @MicrosoftTeams No problem. Also issues with the join button in the teams client. Fix was to prevent the rewrite on teams domain urls to resolve for future invites. Those sent before the fix need to use the workaround of clicking join link in body of outlook invite

  • Diana_Ar_ Diana Ar (@Diana_Ar_) reported

    @Outlook I use the Mail app that comes with iPhones. I’ve never had an issue until I updated to iOS 14.2. And I’ve never had an issue with it since owning an iPhone!

  • IamAmaka Amaka (@IamAmaka) reported

    @abz_06 @Outlook @AppleSupport Apple said I should delete my account and re-add it. If that doesn’t work then it’s down to Microsoft to fix it

  • GlobalWJ Will Johnson (@GlobalWJ) reported

    There seems to be a bug with @Outlook where when you click on a recurring meeting in "Outlook Today" it opens the series of meetings rather than today's meeting. An issue when someone updates a single meeting to include a new Zoom link or when you try to cancel a single meeting.

  • DoomishFox moon moon 🌸 (@DoomishFox) reported

    @Outlook i have a bug report: disabling spam filtering on personal 365 accounts seems to be missing. the spam filter has already flagged multiple .edu emails and even Word document sharing emails and disabling it appears to be broken.

  • thegingerpig Ginger Pig1 (@thegingerpig) reported

    @Outlook why am I being asked for my password every few hours on my iPhone ! I contacted apple they say it’s your problem with certificate ! I deleted and added it again it worked for a few days now doing it again ! I’m kidding important emails what’s the solution !

  • regicfc Gary (@regicfc) reported

    @Outlook @AppleSupport which is outlook constantly asking me to re-enter my password I thought this issue was resolved?

  • piercedevine Pierce Devine (@piercedevine) reported

    @Apple @Outlook can you sort out the email sign in situation on the iPhones please. Very annoying having to constantly put in my outlook email password.

  • Dumbre91 𝕾𝖆𝖚𝖗𝖆𝖇𝖍♛ (@Dumbre91) reported

    @Outlook Now I am giving you 24 hours from my side to rectify the issues. I am waiting for your response. It's high time and now you guys are testing my patience.

  • missrebekah13 Rebekah 🦋 (@missrebekah13) reported

    @RadJames @Outlook I’m having the same problem complete **** show it’s like Fort Knox

  • JB3658 JB365 (@JB3658) reported

    @MyNameIsMurray @Outlook @MicrosoftTeams Result was different, but we had some issues with Teams Meeting URLs on externally hosted meetings. After looking into it, our spam filtering was doing URL rewrite and blocking join. Doubt it is the same issue, but thought I’d share.

  • SdotSmiler Sdot Smiler (@SdotSmiler) reported

    Having to keep re sign in my email account.. it’s getting beyond a joke now !! @Outlook

  • dellskin Dell S Kin (@dellskin) reported

    Are @outlook imap servers down or does @bluemail have problems? My outlook app is fine, but bluemail has not synced my hotmail account since 12:06am est. I have stopped and cleared bluemail cache with no effect.

  • ShallowRedempt1 Shallow Redemption (@ShallowRedempt1) reported

    @amazon I’m not sure who’s responsible for your website but there’s major issues. I just got my account suspended for activity (which was not explained to me in a logical way, and this is typical of many websites such as @Outlook so it’s not just you)...

  • dottles Leanne (@dottles) reported

    @AppleSupport @Outlook please can the password issue be resolved on the newest iOS. It’s pretty ridiculous now. I’ve deleted and reinstalled the account multiple times, still happening.

  • aaronpress Aaron Press (@aaronpress) reported

    Having issues with @Microsoft and @Outlook: an OLD Hotmail account has been compromised and is being used to commit fraud. I can't log in and the @Outlook account recovery process won't let me in. There appears to be no other recourse. Sigh...

  • _hannahsaid ♉︎ (@_hannahsaid) reported

    How long are @Outlook gonna continue to ignore this password error with IOS and actually fix it? Used @gmail solely for the past few months with no issues, but still getting those stupid hotmail password reset pop ups from @Apple
