We have tried pinging Outlook website using our server and the website returned the above results. If outlook.com is down for us too there is nothing you can do except waiting. Probably the server is overloaded, down or unreachable because of a network problem, outage or a website maintenance is in progress...

Can't Access Outlook - Troubleshooting Instructions

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Try alternative urls such as m.outlook.com

Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page. For instructions choose your browser :

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

Check our help page for step-by-step instructions on how to change your DNS.

5 days ago I suddenly had to provide a password for my outlook email account and when I did provide it I got the message that " It looks like someone is accessing your account" I was unable to find out where this information came from and was unable to get any help .The guy from Philippines I was hooked up with could do nothing but refer me to a questionnaire that I had already filled out 5 times and sent out, a questionnaire that asks for information from the distant past that I could not remember nor should I or anyone have to be tortured with that kind of nonsense. This of course confirms what my oldest son has told me. Switch to Apple, mac, ipad et al. He is totally disgusted with Microsoft and its patched together operating system that is so vulnerable to viruses and malware and so freaky in many other ways. So I now do have two ipads and a macbook and will slowly take the time to familiarize myself with these. but I will try to retrieve some of the information that I have on some apps like outlook and then it is sayonara for Mr. Gates and Mr. Allen and their screwed up fragile overpriced operating system. I have spent/wasted way too much time with all the failings of that system. It is antiquated horrible messy patchy frustrating and I guess for these reasons challenging...BUT it is time to let go of the past and move on to something far more stable and user friendly
