Outlook son of Hotmail goes titsup for many in the US and UK

@outlook You utter shower! WHY aren't you using a rival to update us?!

Reducing the cost and complexity of web vulnerability management

Hotmail Outlook services are down for some users and have been for most of today, although it's unclear what the issue is.

While many users have taken to Twitter to complain that they can't access their emails, others have said they have been able to access the service, suggesting that the problems hasn't spread worldwide. However, tweets about being locked out of mails have come from UK, Spanish and US users.

Microsoft Support has tweeted that it's investigating the issue in response to queries, but other users have expressed frustration that obvious Twitter feeds to get information from like @outlook haven't given out any service updates.

One user in the UK told El Reg that the service had been down for the last six hours, while Outlookers on Twitter said they hadn't been able to get into their mails all day. ®
