Hotmail/Outlook e-mail problems, anyone else?
mine has been ok on the pc and laptop…but its the app on the phone that’s the problem….since updating to outlook a few weeks ago… its had moments (quite often) when it would sign itself out and then ask me to sign back in….this takes ages and several attempts….not had the problem for a few days so maybe its sorted itself out…Posted 4 years agoFunkyDuncMember
I’ve had problems on PC with it taking forever to bring up emails, not being able to see attachments on emails. Idly on my Windows Phone hitting reply has sent the email to everyone who has been in the email trail.

Outlook got a little better for a while, then Microtoss announced they were abandoning account linking, now I can make a cup of tea in the time it takes to log in. That’s make a cup of tea from scratch, including buying a kettle, tea bags and blending hydrogen and oxygen 2:1 for the water.Posted 4 years agoIainAhhSubscriber
Glad its not just me.
Spent half a hour trying to send an important email this morning.
Working on my phone but not on my laptop, both ie and firefox same wifi.
Of course it is now working fine a hour later FFS.
It works ok most of the time but I don’t really understand why outlook is so slow and flaky at times. I rarely had any problems with Hotmail before the switch over.Posted 4 years ago
On the bright side – it means I spend more time here on STW:
*Log into Outlook*
Read STW for 10 mins until Outlook fires up.
*Click an email I need to read*
Now looking at the third page of STW threads…
*Attempt to reply to said email – computer says ‘cannot connect’*
Type long whinge on STW about how rubbish modern life is. Search “what tyres for duff email provider”.
Oop! – we’re logged in, gotta go.Posted 4 years ago

I’ve persevered with the new Hotmail /outlook but have finally given up. Set myself up an account with my IP and set the Hotmail account to auto forward all emails. Transferring contacts turned out to be quite easy and I’ve added a signature block at the bottom of all emails I send which says ‘please note my new address.’
I honestly think Microsoft have purposely made it rubbish to drive people away!Posted 4 years agobazwadahMember
For some real fun, try changing your hotmail password – it asks you to ” type in the image characters displayed below”…. But there is no image!. Im now convinced Microsoft are purposely trying to get people to stop using hotmail for some bizarre reason, otherwise they would have sorted this by nowPosted 4 years ago
