A lot of people use Outlook.com to get their email so when Microsoft had a problem that affected the program, people noticed.
Microsoft says the problem has now been fixed and the web-based service is back up and running normally. The announcement came more than seven hours after Microsoft first acknowledged that some users had been locked out of their Outlook.com accounts. Microsoft blames the system problem on an unexplained incident. Microsoft says only a small number of users were affected.
Even so, with Microsoft claiming more than 400-million Outlook.com accounts, that would mean millions of people could have been affected by the glitch.
