I am sorry to hear about that problem. My name is***** am a computer expert with 17 years of experience and I will be trying to help you as good as I can.
Hotmail.com and outlook.com are having technical issues for the last days, the problem is not related at you doing anything wrong at all. Microsoft is working on it and will provide a fix for it in about 2 to 6 hours as they promised. All you can do in the meanwhile is to wait until they have resolved the issue, but your computer and settings are absolutely fine, it is not your fault at all.
Please let me know if I can be of further help by replying in the box below. I would also be very happy if you could rate my service with 3 to 5 stars at the right top of your screen and click "Submit".
Thanks for your patience and best regards,
