Microsoft Outlook Issue

This might be an off topic since this is a confirmed issue with Microsoft but I’m just wondering how vast are the affected users on this issue.

west coast user here.


…What’s the issue?

I got this from the O365 Health Status Page:


Taken from MS O365 Health Portal:

Title: Can’t access email User Impact: Users may be unable to connect to the Exchange Online service. More info: Other services with dependencies on Exchange Online, such as calendar access through Microsoft Teams, could also be intermittently unavailable. Current status: We’re continuing to repair the communication issue between mailbox-hosting infrastructure and components that facilitate access and other users actions. In parallel, we’re exploring additional potential mitigation actions to more quickly restore service. Scope of impact: This issue could potentially affect any of your users if they are routed through the affected infrastructure. Start time: Friday, July 19, 2019, at 9:30 AM UTC Root cause: A potential communication issue between service components that host the affected mailboxes and infrastructure that facilitates user connections is affecting access to Exchange Online.

Good to know, but this is probably better suited for the Outages mailing list.
