Oh my Word... Microsoft Office 365 unlatched after morning lockout
Ken 'e' logins
Updated Users of Microsoft's Office365 cloud productivity suite struggled to log in today.
A handful of reports on downdetector.com identified login, server connection and Outlook errors in the past 24 hours.
In a tweet, Office 365 Status admitted:
We’re investigating reports of users unable to log in to the Office365 service. An update will be provided shortly.— Office 365 Status (@Office365Status) June 30, 2017
Users didn't mince words on Twitter.
"Final straw for us with your abysmal platform," tweeted SussexLocal Magazine. "Moving to #gmail..."
Others seemed more concerned about their burning ears ...
Please check the hold music device on your O365 phone help line. Spend half an hour in agony. Sound like a crashing tape recorder.— Marcel (@marcel_emenems) June 30, 2017
It seems that although the admin portal was down for many users for several hours, services are still mostly running.
The login issue now appears to have been resolved, although some users are still reporting login loops and other errors.
Microsoft declined to comment on the causes of the last Office 365 access problem. We have contacted Microsoft again to see if there's a comment on today's login issues and will update if we hear back. ®
