Customer Question
I can't get into...

I can't get into my hotmail account, ''an error has occurred'' message appears each time. I've even changed my password ***** the same message appears.

Technician's Assistant: Are you logged into your Hotmail account on any other devices?

I have an iPhone 7+ from which I can access hotmail but the account looks entirely different and does not present the same information.

Technician's Assistant: Do you have security questions or a phone number on file to help reset your password?

Yes my Thai mobile ph no: to which is sent a text message and it still does not work

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Email Expert to know before I connect you?

I think maybe some one has sent unencrypted ''bug'' in the form of an email last night

Good evening! Outlook.com (Hotmail) is currently down. Microsoft is reporting:

We've determined that a configuration issue is causing Outlook.com connectivity issues and we're implementing a fix to remediate impact.

Unfortunately, there is no work-around aside from waiting for Microsoft to resolve the issue. For updated status information, see: https://portal.office.com/servicestatus

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
