Windows Live Hotmail has biggest outage in over 10 years

    In terms of email uptime, I’ve had a great experience with Hotmail over the years. I’ve used the service for around 10 years now and struggle to remember more than 1 or 2 other outages.

    Today’s was the worst by far, with users experiencing outages spanning multiple hours, in my case around 5 hours. Even scarier was the fact the message displayed indicated my mailbox no longer existed.


    A quick trip to let me know there was an outage.
