Microsoft Office 365 outage reports emerge

Microsoft reported that some users have been unable to access Office 365 mailboxes since Thursday.

The Microsoft 365 Twitter account disclosed the outage just before 9PM AEST. The account tweeted again just before 1AM AEST, saying that "we've determined that a subset of Domain Controller infrastructure is unresponsive, resulting in user connection time outs."

"We're applying steps to mitigate the issue," the account tweeted.

In a statement provided to CRN USA, Microsoft said: "We’re working to resolve difficulties a limited subset of enterprise customers in Europe are experiencing when attempting to access Exchange Online.”

Reports of the outage on DownDectector.com began late Thursday night AEST, and reports on the site have continued steadily in the following hours.

The Microsoft 365 Status Twitter account posted that Microsoft was "investigating an issue where users can't access their mailboxes through multiple protocols."

The incident follows November's outage of Azure and Office 365 services. That outage affected users who were required to sign in using multifactor authentication.
