Hotmail and Live Services disrupted in the UK

Some users are reporting that Live.com and Hotmail have been disrupted at least in some parts of the UK.


Down for everyone or just me website appears to confirm the outage.

A quick check from The Netherlands showed that downforeveryoneorjustme agreed, but I was still able to reach http://live.com by clicking on the link.

Let us know in the comments if you are experiencing issues connecting to either service and where you're located.

One member commented that the service has been out since at least 7am this morning and briefly appeared at around 8am for a short time, while another reported other issues such as javascript errors appearing on the site yesterday.

It doesn't appear to affect everyone in the UK, and for others it has affected all Microsoft Live services or is intermittent.

We have reached out to Microsoft for comment.

Was down for at least 6 hours for me, managed to get in at around 9am to check then down again and still not working ....

Totally down for me, my wife and a friend since 7am this morning. Came back on briefly around 8am but down again now.

Yesterday Hotmail.co.uk was reporting javascript errors and html errors. Maybe they had to restore from a back up and had issues.
