    I don't feel angry. I wish this person one day realizes the error of her way and makes a change for the good. That we cannot keep excusing our own fault in situations we create. Until then, however, she will just continue to exist in a miserable world with a miserable outlook.

  • ravenlore ravenlore (@ravenlore) reported

    @eckeane As an IT girl who spends her day remoting into people to fix Outlook...they're prolly 🤣on the inside.

    What a bizarre outlook on an issue that bears directly on a candidate's fitness for higher office

  • justdanieldean Daniel Mueller (@justdanieldean) reported

    every moment in popular media that dwells on the negative—i.e., a “glass half empty,” a “this needs to change,” or a “we live in a terrible society” perspective—effects an increasingly pessimistic outlook in the next generation. & this is why we’re all depressed and anxious

    i haven’t felt rlly down much this week and have had a really positive outlook on things all week

  • MikeyKrieger sad, but not cute (@MikeyKrieger) reported from Bellevue, Washington

    @geg Yeah, I’m colorblind and from outlook clockwise down to teams look virtually the same to me. My cynical assumption that they wouldn’t want to offend a masculine businessman with a fragile ego that uses Enterprise.

  • anthonytraurig Anthony Traurig (@anthonytraurig) reported

    Ugh this is not good. If he’s already having issues and ST just started, his outlook for 162 is no bueno.

  • GoodThings2Life Aaron Hall (@GoodThings2Life) reported

    @IslandDog @Outlook It's been terrible lately. No idea what had happened, but I'm about ready to move on.

  • Truth_SeekersTV Truth Seekers TV (@Truth_SeekersTV) reported

    @Scorp_Tweet @ExorcistBishop I've posted a few things on tge paranormal and been slammed down amd ridiculed at times. I just accept that some hate my views. I don't mind them not having the same outlook, we are all different, but it's the way they try to make you look stupid.

  • nino_calingo METRO BOOMIN (@nino_calingo) reported

    Outlook is so trash like how can they create an email server that is such flaming hot garbagio. Jesus might as well to tell my co workers and clients to hit me on IG DM

  • vmyselfandi vmyselfandi (@vmyselfandi) reported

    @GoDaddy you sell me on Microsoft outlook email for my email under YOUR business account. Now I’m having issues with email and you can’t help and tell me to call @Microsoft. It’s YOUR account that my email is under. I need your help to fix it. @GoDaddyHelp

  • DannyAllenUK Danny Allen (@DannyAllenUK) reported

    @ionos_help_uk It's no longer working. Outlook on PC has now started flagging errors even though I have successfully sent and received messages last night and this morning

  • pickronk Kevin Pickron (@pickronk) reported

    @TashasEv @Outlook Thank you!! I do IT work for elderly almost exclusively, you just found what I deal with everyday!! Please make a way to disable quick keys and somehow fix this problem and you have changed my life, honestly once we start over because that is the only answer .. I save it for them

  • JustDaveXxx Just Dave (@JustDaveXxx) reported

    @BangBrosDotCom I have been shooting so many 1st time girls with no agents and no porn experience; Fake company owners is the biggest problem I see. If the email ends in gmail, Hotmail, yahoo and not in the company websites name; it’s a scam! Ladies; please do your research!!

  • DrTaylorWallace Dr. Taylor Wallace (@DrTaylorWallace) reported

    The top #economist @USDA can't make clear predictions about the 2019 farm economy because the outlook is clouded by unpredictable factors such as trade policy, weather and market info. One thing is certain: USDA expects low commodity prices to drag down incomes per @Morning_Ag

  • La__Ley Ana Ley (@La__Ley) reported from Norfolk, Virginia

    @JakonHays Lol! I’ve been having phone issues so this is a new one...it’s just all the default Apple apps. But back to my Email Hell...this switch from Gmail to Outlook is driving me so crazy! 😩

  • toddtrann Todd Trann (@toddtrann) reported

    There is nothing that slows down my Mac like MS Outlook. Not even docker running VMs with services running comes anywhere close.

  • MarAzul_90 MarAzul (@MarAzul_90) reported

    Results at KHC are terrible, management has not executed as planned and the outlook is not inspiring...bad for Berkshire shareholders and as expected, many investors making fun of Buffett...important to put things into context...

  • gcaughey Ginny Caughey (@gcaughey) reported

    @maryjofoley I’d agree there’s so reason to “fix” something that isn’t broken. That said, although I use both versions of Outlook, I use the mobile one more even on PCs.

  • thesedaysgoby Scottie SleepyHead (@thesedaysgoby) reported

    It’s not going to fix anything. What you need to change is your outlook. How you choose to look at things is half the battle.

    Fix the “new outlook” @Outlook

  • Sovnarkhoz_Wave HauntedKhrushchevite (@Sovnarkhoz_Wave) reported

    @LilyAmaraPastor @sev__k But this is what the material dialectics of history would lead us to believe, and anticipate. We do the socialisation of the means of labour together with humanist world-outlook, and this should solve the problems you speak of by itself.

    @TashasEv @Outlook It’s broken for everyone. I was just recently locked out of an account because I couldn’t remember how to spell my elementary school 🙄

  • HeseesEBONY Jessica C. (@HeseesEBONY) reported

    This is bad, this is the reason why many people have such a negative outlook on church unfortunately. There’s nothing wrong with having nice things, but if your church is in shambles and you’re living lavish that’s a problem.

  • HollyVWoollett Holly (@HollyVWoollett) reported

    @rickygervais I just felt so sad and hopeless at the outlook of this horrible world, and my addiction to social media makes me reminisce my addiction to alcohol... but seeing what @rickygervais has to say somehow gives me hope. Can't avoid problems just take them head on. The only way.

    @kelittlejohn @r_nd_f__ld @Capitan_Typo @Anncaro11 When you see the login prompt with 'yourusername@detnsw' (or in some cases your email address) shown, click More choices and then Use a different account. Enter 'yourusername@det' and then your password. Click OK and then Outlook should begin to work. I think HTs/APs have access.

  • ChrisRobionson Chris Robionson (@ChrisRobionson) reported

    A couple of hours into my Email Free Friday in @MonmouthshireCC . The biggest problem is having to go into Outlook to find contact details - and the temptation is high (I've only succumbed twice so far!) No withdrawal symptoms yet but more coffee than usual has been drunk!

    IT tip of the day: if you receive a 'Send Error' report in Outlook that says you no longer have access to a SharePoint contact list: File -> Account Settings -> Account Settings -> SharePoint Lists -> Click on offending list -> Remove -> Close Problem solved. You're welcome.

    @KanchanGupta IWT and dams aside, one "massive victory" was already gained in februaru last year when pakistan was placed on FATF. your apparent silence about it only goes to show your outlook on this issue. Indira gandhi who gave away 90k pow's and territory otoh was somehow a "hero"

  • overxanalysing A. (@overxanalysing) reported

    @DramaticIntros - it just happens. When it does, I feel terrible, and I always try to apologize. But, sometimes it's just too late. That's one thing I've learned about people. Once they've formulated an opinion, it's hard to change it. Then, if they give other's a negative outlook on you, -

  • SinghNavdeep Navdeep Singh (@SinghNavdeep) reported

    @sandythapar @vikramwkarve @BrigMahalingam @SmritiRDas1 @tksapru @MajDPSingh Sir the original tweet was on the new orders for rank-neutral travel by air. On the issue of disabled soldiers also, the initial self-defeating and stigmatic outlook of the defence services cannot be ignored. In many other issues too.

  • andinoar Arnold Andino (@andinoar) reported

    @Outlook After the update, my primary account was removed. The only way to get it back is to remove the other accounts and start fresh. Only problem is that it is then short lived and a short time later it disappears again.

  • Qzibre_ zibre 💕 (@Qzibre_) reported

    I been heart broken one time and that's all it took for my outlook on love to change.

  • _babygee__ Gee 🌹 (@_babygee__) reported

    I understand people are trying to understand why people murder but it's giving society an outlook that because someone had a broken home or abuse as a child they will grow up to be series killers. That's not an answer, it's just a speculation.

  • konate127 Karen Oñate (@konate127) reported

    Sooo I tried to find my own MySpace again for shits and giggles. Of course I have to sign in to see it... with my Hotmail email that doesn’t exist anymore...and a password from high school that I can’t remember... #itsbeenahotminute

  • OrionListug Orion (@OrionListug) reported

    @TashasEv @Outlook Same issue happened with my grandparents ~12 years ago. It sucks how unfriendly technology tends to be towards the elderly or tech illiterate.

  • TashasEv Tashas[E]v (@TashasEv) reported

    So upset right now that I can't help my grandma recover her @outlook account. She can't remember the answers to the questions asked in the recovery form. Phones support says they can't help. This process is completely broken for elderly and tech illiterate folks.

    @SinghNavdeep @vikramwkarve @BrigMahalingam @SmritiRDas1 @tksapru @MajDPSingh We are not talking of pay allces or service privileges issues here Navdeep. Am talking about substantive issues like force restructuring/modernisation, mtg genuine requirements of fauz...Remember snow scooters! Or ur favourite issue - disability. The gen outlook is adversarial

    @busterx54 @SuperSaiyanPaul I would send them to @NickRekieta . The guy sounds like a good dude who is independent of the Dragon Ball community. When he explained how this could go down, I got chills. Changed my outlook on lawyers for sure.

    It seems that version 1901 of @Outlook 356 stretches animated gifs to approximately 150% of their height. Doesn’t seem to be a CSS/tables issue.

  • Glimmernet Glimmernet (@Glimmernet) reported

    Spent far too long today trying to determine why some systems would update Outlook to v1901 and others were stuck at 1808. All to diagnose a rendering issue in the new version.

  • RenehBass Reneh-L'tania Bass (@RenehBass) reported

    @DriveNow_UK Hey there, I can’t seem to login with my registered Gmail email address. I suspect there’s a glitch with Gmail accounts, because when I sign in with my unregistered Hotmail email address and say ‘forgot password’ it says email sent. I don’t know if it’s only me😩

  • MikePatton1970 Mike Patton (@MikePatton1970) reported

    @TheSkyCouldFall @FOX2now YOU would not get that from the article...you will get what fits an agenda. There are lots of problems in society and the outlook from people like you will never recognize it nor help.
