Outlook is a great tool used by many, especially in business orientated environments, which allows users to manage their email accounts right from their desktops. Through Outlook, you can have a general perspective of all your email addresses and manage them.

Create new emails, read and receive emails on all your accounts, or just move some stuff from spam to trash. Whatever you can normally do on your email via browser is possible with Outlook, but with a much more convenient access point.

As of late, Outlook has been experiencing some technical difficulties, with enough users that it caught Microsoft’s attention. Once word was received that Outlook is not performing like it should, Microsoft further looked into the situation and uncovered that this had been going on as early as November 17.

User would reach a dead end when trying to either use Outlook or access their website. Some complained about email syncing between platforms being down, while others claimed they couldn’t access Outlook altogether.

The problem seems to have had been resolved, as Microsoft has started to roll out a fix for Outlook. Not everyone has received the fix yet, but it is presumed that it will eventually reach all devices. You might be prompted about an update which contains the Outlook fix in the near future if you still haven’t received any word.

The good thing is that Microsoft managed to find out what the problem was and act accordingly, although a public announcement that states the problem has yet to be issued. Some speculate the perpetrator is the update of the entire Outlook service, which might have left some bugs behind.
