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.

Have I made a major mistake switching my emails to outlook.com? I can not get in at all. It says "Establishing Secure Connection", then crashes. Looks like others are having similar problems. If this crap does not clear up by the end of the day, I'm heading to GoDaddy to get a domain and telling Outlook to shove it.

I got to know about this BLANK ATM CARD when I was searching for job online about a month ago..It has really changed my life for good and now I can say I'm rich and I can never be poor again. The least money I get in a day with it is about $2,000.(two thousand USD) Every now and then I keeping pumping money into my account. Though is illegal,there is no risk of being caught ,because it has been programmed in such a way that it is not traceable,it also has a technique that makes it impossible for the CCTVs to detect you..For details on how to get yours today, email the hackers on : (atmmachinehackes @ gmail.com). Tell your loved once too, and start to live large. That's the simple testimony of how my life changed for good...Love you all ...the email address again is atmmachinehackes@gmail.com

Outlook.com appears to be down at the moment along with ISP issues in the Orange County, CA area for TWC subscribers. Must be solar flares again! I've tried accessing Outlook.com from TWC network as well as my office in LA with no luck.
Why does IIDRN.com show outlook.com being up when there's clearly an issue with the site?

Started with MS Lync yesterday. Today: Outlook 365 OWA unable to login, and Office Outlook unable to send/receive at all. status.office365.com/ and https://status.live.com/ are falsely reporting no errors.

Over the past 2 days I've been getting this message when I try to reply or send emails: "We're unable to connect with Outlook right now. Check back later." - I think it's sending them but doesn't close the message box once it's been sent... just comes up with that message and hangs there.

Since "hotmail" has been transferred to "outlook" I feel like I've had much more trouble with my emails... It's not that annoying because it does not last very long, but there are many short "down" periods.

About a month ago I suddenly could not get into my MSN, or my Outlook email. The reason stated was something about security, but I thought they must want money. I tried everything then suddenly I could get into MSN but I have never been able to get into my email. The reason stated is "someone" tried to get in many times with the wrong password. That some was me when I could not get into MSN. Over a week ago I emailed MSN Outlook asking them to straighten out my email and let me back in. As of today I still cannot get into my email and I do not know what to do to make it work.

I've been getting the following message for the past few hours: "We're unable to connect with Outlook right now. Check back later." Sometimes it comes back for a few minutes, then hangs up again. Access to other Internet sites is fine, so I suspect the problem is not with my computer. It's very frustrating.
