Microsoft Outlook and Teams down – millions left without email in mystery outage

USERS have been left without access to their Outlook emails due to a mysterious outage affecting Microsoft.

The tech giant has revealed it is investigating an issue with its Microsoft 365 services, which also includes chat app Teams.


Teams has also been hit

Problems hit just as people across the UK started logging on for work on Wednesday.

Reports spiked on the Down Detector site around 7.30am GMT.

It’s not clear how widespread the outage is as yet.

Microsoft tweeted: “We’re investigating issues impacting multiple Microsoft 365 services.”

The company’s own status update page adds: “Users may be unable to access multiple Microsoft 365 services.

“We’ve identified a potential networking issue and are reviewing telemetry to determine the next troubleshooting steps.”

Services affected include Microsoft Teams, Exchange Online, Outlook, SharePoint Online, OneDrive for Business and Microsoft Graph.

Confused users began tweeting about it trying to find out what’s wrong.

“I can’t access my work email, it’s just loading,” one said.

“I wonder if Microsoft laid off the wrong people,” another joked, referencing the company’s recent announcement that 10,000 people will lose their jobs.

“It’s like the universe is giving us a day off from work, without even asking for it,” a third added.

Microsoft has said it will provide progress update at 9am.
