Microsoft said late Tuesday that it had resolved the issue that kept many users from accessing many of its online services for most of the day.

Hotmail Outage Resolved
Windows Live Service Experiences Blackout

The outage affected services including Windows Live Mail Hotmail, Xbox Live, Skydrive and Live Messenger. Microsoft has not said what caused the outage.

By 7 p.m. EST Tuesday, Microsoft said the problem had been fixed and all services were operating. "Earlier today, an issue began that has caused some consumers worldwide to experience difficulty logging in to their Windows Live ID accounts," said Samantha McManus, product manger for Windows Live.

"This issue has since been resolved and normal operations have been restored to all customers." Microsoft said the outage issue only impacted the log-in process for users and did not affect users who were already logged in.

"Microsoft worked aggressively to resolve this unique problem as quickly as possible. We apologize for any inconvenience this issue has caused consumers," McManus said.

This was not the first time Microsoft services have been down. Close to a year ago Live Messenger, Live Mail and other services were not available to users for part of a day. In April 2007, Live Mail and Messenger were not operating for a number of hours. In each case Microsoft did not say what caused the outages.

    DAY 4 — HOW LONG WILL THIS CONTINUE??!?!?

  • Guest

    I haven’t had any mail for 3 days now.

    This is invasion, money mongering and intrusive on Microsoft’s part.

    How do you justify changing a customer’s service without notifying them?

    I think there might me a lawsuit afoot..regarding civil liberties here and invasion of privacy.

    Sincerely

    It is 7:30 a.m.,   Thursday in Michigan.  I just got off the phone with a very snotty tech support person who was very adament that the problem with Hotmail is MY web browser, that there are no problems with Hotmail, not have there been any recently.   Good thing that I could not go thru the phone at her.   

  • Guest

    It’s Thursday afternoon at almost 1:00 EST, and I still cannot access my hotmail account. It’s been three solid days now!  Does anyone know if Microsoft is acknowledging that there are still problems?

  • Guest

    Could it be a cache problem?? Mine was up Late afternoon on Tuesday. I get a new page with each visit so maybe that helped. GMAIL looks better every day!

    • Guest

      Gmail IS better by far!

    Is it possible that they are at war , after all it was a hostile take over and with each other all becasue Yahoo  has said no lots of times? And is it possible this has been going on for awhile? All I know is we are caught in the middle and things that don’t work  all the time as they use to. Is it also Possible that we have forgen hackers hired by bad guys at top dollar to disruped the net and e-mail servers so we are paying attention to that instead of what we really need to pay attention to? I just wonder what is really going on.

    • Star

      hostility always brings grief and disruption. Msn flexing it’s muscles has turned my stomach! They suck like a 2 bit whore. Greedy bastards in bed with every dirty greedy SOB that can make a buck from this.

  • mallikarjuna

    i am unable to login in to my account

  • Star

    Will IE7 ever be fixed?? Will it ever be all it’s been propped up to be?? Right now my opinion is that it sucks like the backdraft of a vaccuum.

    Given that Hotmail recently implemented a practice of bouncing any mail they catch with more than ten recipients in the ‘to’ field, then you’d have to be insane to still be usiing it.

    After all that means you can’t use Hotmail for message groups. to join a forum (messages to alert you to new responses to a post or forum wide events will get bounced), to recieve group emails (no point joining a mailing list if you have Hotmail) or just most forwards from your friends. No social networking sites and pretty much 50% of the uses of an email will not get through to you.
