This weekend many Hotmail users have been reporting problems in accessing their accounts. They are getting errors like Server is Temporarily Unavailable etc.. while they try to log into their accounts.Microsoft acknowledged the problems immediately. Confirmation of the email service’s downtime served to inform frustrated users of what was happening, but they still had to wait a few hours before Windows Live Hotmail was up and running again. Microsoft announced that only a limited group of users were impacted, having been locked out of their accounts.
“Just wanted to let everyone know we’re aware of the difficulties accessing Hotmail/Live Hotmail right now ‘ you may get “Server is Temporarily Unavailable” when logging in. We’re working hard right now to restore service to all users, and we apologize for the inconvenience,” reads a message from Microsoft Email Support Space on July 27.
While Hotmail is back into action now and is working fine, but still there is official reason from Microsoft as to what exactly happened. But Microsoft has denied any loss of data.
