    @HeavenHandZ @alexmuench @parabecks You can personalize it to any activity/thing you want, but taking the time to force yourself to do something for YOU after a day of forcing yourself to do things for others does help ones outlook. It's not a fix mind, but a small help/survival method.

  • KADillon98 KD (@KADillon98) reported

    To everyone that’s abusing Lewis Hamilton for trying to change people’s outlook of massive world problems because “hE dRiVeS F1 CaRs FoR a LiViNg” without doing their research first

  • ahansonhd Aleiha Hanson (@ahansonhd) reported

    @steveendow Yup, doesn't stay connected and too slow for any VPN and sometimes even Outlook :(

  • JawharaTariq Jawhara Tariq (@JawharaTariq) reported

    I had a dream that I was on two panels at the same time and my Outlook was down so I couldn't communicate with either organizer. These are what my nightmares look like these days LOLLLL

  • Ataraxia_osu Ataraxia (@Ataraxia_osu) reported

    from the bottom of my heart i hate outlook/hotmail always my account is blocked for tiny reasons and i need to create another which is a pain in the ass to do im the problem i know but google never disappointed me

  • mujeebpk1 Mujeeb (@mujeebpk1) reported

    @sadat_younis @StaunchInsafian Overall It is good but a bit slow, requires high speed internet service to work efficiently, themes are not so attractive to have a better look of screen. Personally I would recommend to remain on outlook.

  • SergioHRuizG Sergio H Ruiz G (@SergioHRuizG) reported from Tapachula, Estado de Chiapas

    @Outlook are there any problem on the service i can't sign in

  • rcadden Ricky Cadden (@rcadden) reported

    @robotodd The only reason I don't use Outlook (and use @9FoldersInc instead) is because Outlook is unable to notify you of new emails in subfolders. So if you use server-side rules to organize your email, you're SOL.

  • tigerscubs84 @TigersCubs84 (@tigerscubs84) reported

    Pretty cold take. Biggest game of Harbaugh era was 4th down gate in Columbus. Changed the whole outlook of the program

  • empirestatemind Empire Storm (@empirestatemind) reported

    @wearecorn @marafafito @bryanbehar And I wish Pete’s problem was that he was an overly optimistic, naive candidate who aims too high & thinks he can make massive change. Instead he’s naive & inexperienced with a Debbie downer negative outlook and is GOP lite. He doesn’t represent change from status quo to me.

  • TanyaCox19 Tanya Cox (@TanyaCox19) reported

    I have just been advised that this is a browser problem... Hotmail & Fetlife work fine via Internet Explorer but don't seem to be compatible with Microsoft Edge (since today). This is really annoying as most other sites work better on Microsoft X

  • MoosaMahsoom Moosa Mahsoom (@MoosaMahsoom) reported

    @MSEdgeDev @Outlook desktop notifications not working on Edge Beta.

  • TanyaCox19 Tanya Cox (@TanyaCox19) reported

    Both Hotmail and Fetlife seem to be down at present. I wonder if they use the same server. Apologizes to anyone waiting for replies on either, I will get back to you ASAP X

  • ZoeperJ ZoeperJ (@ZoeperJ) reported

    @disneyplus Perhaps first solve the issues that you have in the Netherlands @DisneyPlusNL Sending of OTP (to #Hotmail) not working. Cannot sign-in without OTP!

  • LazarusLife Helen Lazarus (@LazarusLife) reported

    Huge apologies to anyone trying to #email me at hclmanagement - down for 5 hours, please DM if you need me & I'll reply via personal hotmail #Service from @123reg non-existent, complete silence from @123regHelp #technology #fail #selfemployed

    @JDBunkis @FAN590 My first one was login_taken @ hotmail Everything I wanted gave login taken, so I used that. Now I just use matson67

  • CAWestSussex Citizens Advice in West Sussex (@CAWestSussex) reported

    Our client, caring for an elderly relative, was working but struggled financially and with health issues. They were eligible for benefits but not claiming. They've now been able to stop work, focus on their health/wellbeing, with no money worries and a happier outlook #CABLive

  • MMaystorm GHGR, DC Comics, or JoJolion’s Main Villain? (@MMaystorm) reported

    @thesecretsmile It feels like whenever a female villian goes good that DC waters them down into the traditional female hero over time And I don’t even want to be a hero who kills at every opportunity, just a pragmatic/end justifies the means kind of outlook to be fine with it occasionally

  • _Naccessory_ GabrielleUtsey (@_Naccessory_) reported

    @JennELo Wait, in our office we had an Outlook problem so deep we had to contact Microsoft because IT was perplexed... it was changing people’s email addresss... like janedoe@company to janedoe@xcompany. It would an old email or one that didn’t even exist

  • GeraldCoon Gerald (@GeraldCoon) reported

    @cra @sachinag @jmckenty @kstewart I've done mail server administration, extremely advanced procmail filters when I worked on Linux full time, and I was a power outlook user with some crazy filtering rules. I'm currently on 11 slack workspaces with VERY diverse topics and get pinged all the time. #stillpreferslack

  • G_Riedel f'Artagnan (@G_Riedel) reported

    @brenan_d @Christian_Brony @MattWalshBlog That’s not what that implies. Don’t be an absolutist. It implies that men would have a more informed, nuanced outlook on the issue.

  • aaronbrickman Aaron Brickman (@aaronbrickman) reported

    @CNBC .@CNBC: The IMF said its latest World Economic Outlook projections show 2019 GDP growth at 3.0%, down from 3.2% in a July forecast, largely due to increasing fallout from global trade friction.

  • amoonalls Coming from the moon🌚🌙 (@amoonalls) reported

    pattern. These girls also don't lack in education. They even ace in their college. They also have good and even pleasant appearances. From outlook, there's nothing lack from them. But still, the emotional issues are in there

  • dude_largepants Chris Wyble 🎮 (@dude_largepants) reported

    @ThwipnTDKR I share the same outlook. Hopefully the EIC will just report to him and he'll leave creative control to the comics team. I don't want every issue of every title to be a damn team up story.

  • OfficeSupport OfficeSupport (@OfficeSupport) reported

    @rambler0721 Hello. Thanks for reaching out to us. We'd like to help get this sorted right away. We suggest that you uninstall and reinstall your Outlook application to refresh it and to resolve some issues. Let us know the result.

  • CroydonNorthCLP CroydonNorthLabour (@CroydonNorthCLP) reported

    @arnie_booth @ShappiKhorsandi Goes down well with many Tories and the tabloids, notwithstanding that her own parents sought and were granted asylum here she's managed to eliminate any scrap of compassion or empathy from her outlook on life.

  • June4oneness June Goh (@June4oneness) reported

    @sassy_sae @StarlightMcKenz Ah but if I have a headache & a tummy ache, symptoms may be due to several causes or be linked. Clinically difficult to ignore 1 issue cos co-morbidity may shift symptoms fluidly. If Trust lacks expertise in ASD, would suggest it won’t have solutions for whole child outlook

  • elisamariexx Elisa Chiocchi (@elisamariexx) reported

    @AppleSupport since the new iPhone update I’ve had so many problems with Hotmail. I have to read emails twice to delete and almost every day it says “Cannot reach server” and then all emails suddenly come at once. Help please!

  • Mayoveli Mayowa (@Mayoveli) reported

    @OkKevwe You are a dunce for this your micro-thread sha, your friend was condescending in his thread. And calling religion the biggest problem in Nigeria is not far fetched, depends on the outlook and focus of the observer.

  • mimavox Chatzopoulos (@mimavox) reported

    @MailspringApp Nope, still the same error :( Also, it's not Google Apps that causes trouble, but Microsoft Outlook, as usual. I was hoping for an application that actually works with this MS Outlook/Exchange-crap that my work forces upon me..

  • sohailahmad2107 Sohail Ahmad (@sohailahmad2107) reported

    Growth to slow down to #2.4 % in 2020 , #IMF #Authorities saying in a news conference at the launch of the world economic outlook 2019 !

  • AlexWilsonBot Alexander Wilson💥 (@AlexWilsonBot) reported

    srsly @Outlook. an OOF alert at 11:45 pm. Fix yr software #UX #badUX

  • JonathanEley Jonathan Eley (@JonathanEley) reported

    Asos profits in line with revised guidance but doesn't have much to say on outlook for FY2020, other than that capex will come down as expected

  • ANSTYLEdotCOM Ashanté Nicole (@ANSTYLEdotCOM) reported

    @iChelleBeME @iLL94 @ACEmakesnoise @SheLovesArtemis @dyanathesaint I’ve gotten into more disagreements and debates than I care to with Latin people in Florida that say the n word, yet do not like black people or care to understand us. I don’t have those same issues when I’m back home. So that’s why there’s a different outlook for most NYers

  • GlenNimmo Glen Nimmo (@GlenNimmo) reported

    ASOS finals are ugly - PBT down 68% to £33m. Outlook suggests a better 2020, but not clear what will happen to forecasts today. RIO production report looks OK.

  • ChristinaCdl87 Christina 🌩 (@ChristinaCdl87) reported

    I have such a negative outlook on everything, that plus my bad trust issues doesn’t mix well. I can’t believe him when he says he’ll come, or when he says I’ll be okay. I don’t know what I’m going to do with my life. After high school... I owe my parents so much money and I don’t

  • ahs_lums AHS (@ahs_lums) reported

    GDP growth to slow down to 2.4, inflation to remain high at 13%. More unemployment in 2020 as per @IMFNews economic outlook report. CAD to shrink significantly

  • goodmiad . (@goodmiad) reported

    I check my dm requests just because sometimes people really need a different outlook on things and I’m always down to help. It ain’t always weird shit.

  • CarlLuberti Carl Luberti (boo, or something) (@CarlLuberti) reported

    @AdamFowler_IT LOL - o365 monthly or not at all. And unironically I'm obviously using dogfood bits for Windows and Office and I still have no Outlook issues, so maybe your analogy is more apt than you think :)...

  • TheGamerCherry Cherry ✧ (@TheGamerCherry) reported

    @xXNanikosXx @Noobstone36 @Murphy0749 Yeah I get that. And the attitude is my main concern. Especially when magical is basically saying in my public server if you don't have a competitive record your "bad" at zombies. Which is a horrible outlook, that's why I'm against this whole thing.

  • LorineChia Lorine (@LorineChia) reported

    My brain wouldn’t shut down and let me sleep for months. I finally got rid of all the toxic relationships and things causing me stress. Also changed my outlook on how I view circumstances. I’ve been sleeping good lately 😆

  • stripperella666 𝔰𝔱𝔯𝔦𝔭𝔭𝔢𝔯𝔢𝔩𝔩𝔞𖤐 (@stripperella666) reported

    I had a positive outlook from the moment I woke up. I felt like I had total control of my shift. I made eh so so money. But with it being dead and slow because of a carnival, I’m not surprised. It truly only takes one customer

  • JakeSmears jake smearman (@JakeSmears) reported

    You would’ve thought losing in a cow pasture in Trinidad would have changed the outlook and outcomes of the USMNT. Nope. Nothing. Incompetence from the top down. Unbelievable and embarrassing

  • noahsittler Noah Sittler (@noahsittler) reported

    @RutiRegan I agree! I actually quite like his policies and outlook on disability issues, but I think those views were poorly served by the rhetoric he just used.

  • lauraruns131 Laura Emerick (@lauraruns131) reported

    @ChelseaMDO1 I agree with dept of labor... occupational outlook and onet. That's national data though. If you want to break it down, look up state data thorough local gov or workforce development

  • AFootballMike Mike Alessandrini (@AFootballMike) reported

    @Tristan_Fitz Because he wouldn't fix the team's CB issues. A bit too much to give up (given my pessimistic outlook of the 2019 season/draft order). I like having these assets, Philly can move around in another way.

  • tomwarren Tom Warren (@tomwarren) reported

    @RossSmithIV ahh damn yeah that’s a little far for me :) I usually wake up with around 20 things that should be spam. I just wish Outlook was better at filtering on the server side, but swiping them away definitely makes things easier

  • Balimic87 Mike B (@Balimic87) reported

    @ibespinnyG @TorresGleyber @Yankees My outlook on this series is severely diminished, Edwin Gary Didi all need to sit their asses down somewhere. If Stanton isn’t DH tomorrow Idk what to say.

  • JennaSampson1 Jenna Brooke (@JennaSampson1) reported

    🤧🤧 he’s gave me a terrible outlook on love and life and I can’t even function 😰

  • ThomasAResists 💧Thomas Anderson 🇦🇺🇺🇸 (@ThomasAResists) reported

    @JoshFrydenberg @scottpape The Australian economy will grow slower than that of Greece. The latest World Economic Outlook has cut the 2019 Australian forecast to just 1.7%, down from a predicted 2.1% & well below the Gov & RBA’s forecasts of around 2.25% #FrydenbergFail #MorrisonFail #LNPfail #Auspol

  • patternparty Julia Maes (@patternparty) reported

    trying to troubleshoot and experiment a calendar syncing solution for work and I not only did not find a solution but I think I created new unsolvable problems for myself and now I'm in an Outlook pit of despair

  • karen_dempster Kagsy (@karen_dempster) reported

    @did_40 @karen_renton It is soul destroying at the time but sometimes you just have to put it down as an experience and move forward. Like everyone I have bad day (awful in fact) but I just try to focus on starting the next day with a clean slate and a positive outlook x

  • MelissaL Melissa Libby (@MelissaL) reported

    Just doing this for fun now! 126 hours without being able to send emails via Outlook. Clearly an @office365 issue (per my IT and their engineers) but no one will help fix. Guess my #smallbusiness just doesn't matter.

  • DannyMackSport1 Danny Mack Sports (@DannyMackSport1) reported

    @AdamZHerman Didn't know climate change is an agenda. If the rest of the world Cracked down on China and India, the Outlook would be promising.

  • 08mms MAT-AT (@08mms) reported

    @gokpkd @TheAtkinsFirm @ForumNon Just a draft email in outlook that I have an extensive to-do list in (broken down by client, highlighting to reflect priority and occasionally attach emails/docs when I don’t have time to add to list until I do). We have Blackberry Work, do draft emails auto synch w/ phone.

  • volticxx Volticx (@volticxx) reported

    @MichiganPodcast I would rather be let down than have a negative outlook
