Offices across the country on Tuesday suffered a massive inconvenience in terms of indiscriminate outage followed by Microsoft Outlook’s temporary crash. We have reports coming from various sources stating that offices on Tuesday went into a completely discomfort zone when they found Microsoft’s e-mail service for business has stopped working.
After this incident took place, employees were forced to have follow-up with their clients and bear noticing if they were being folded with emails. The whole situation unintentionally forced offices to work and get back into the older days where facing such situation wasn’t really a big deal.
Considering working in current times, it’s nearly impossible to notice the work getting done without emails, no matter even when it continued for just few hours. It was a serious problem!
Kevin Watson, who is running a political consulting firm in San Clemente. Although, he is using Google’s service for his personal e-mail but for work, he is completely dependent on Microsoft’s Outlook e-mail service.
“I’ve been picking up the phone and calling my most important clients, and you can’t stop because there’s no e-mail,” Kevin Watson says.
Microsoft confirmed the outage but unsurprisingly declined to provide details about the complexity of the problem occurred.
“We sincerely apologize to our customers for any inconvenience this incident may have caused,” Microsoft said in a statement.
Microsoft later managed to resolve the issue and notified that the problem only affected customers based out of North America. Still, they didn’t mention the reason why such problems are even hovering overs its users and creating inconvenience in terms of productivity and security.
