Microsoft's Outlook.com, SkyDrive and People services experiencing issues [Update]

If you have had issues this morning with checking into your Outlook.com account, you are not alone. Many users of Microsoft's web email service are reporting they have had problems signing into their accounts, and others have not been able to view content even if they manage to sign into their accounts.

Other users are experiencing the same problems accessing SkyDrive and Microsoft's People services as well and are reporting their own issues on Twitter:

Microsoft's Twitter support account has already posted that it is aware of the Outlook.com issues.

This latest problem comes just 15 days after some users experienced similar issues when signing into their Outlook.com account.

Update: The Live status page shows that the SkyDrive and People services are back up and running but some users might still not be able to access their Outlook.com emails.

Update 2: The status page now says that Outlook.com access has been restored but there are still issues with mobile devices that can't sync emails. Also, SkyDrive users may have issues with getting notification emails on time.
