Outlook's latest major outage was on June 27, 2023 where customers in North America couldn't sign in for a duration of 7 hours and 24 minutes.. It impacted millions of users.

If your Outlook account is not receiving emails, several factors could be contributing to the issue. Here are some common problems and their solutions:

  1. Check your Junk Email folder: Legitimate emails might get filtered into the Junk Email folder. Review your Junk Email folder to locate any missing emails. If found, mark them as "Not Junk" to ensure they appear in your inbox in the future.
  2. Review email rules and filters: Verify if you have any rules or filters set up that could be automatically moving emails to another folder. Navigate to "Settings" > "Mail" > "Rules" to review and adjust your email rules and filters.
  3. Verify email forwarding settings: If you've configured email forwarding, confirm that the forwarding address is accurate and that forwarding is active.
  4. Check mailbox storage: Outlook has storage limits, and exceeding this limit can prevent new emails from being received. Check your mailbox storage usage in "Settings" > "Mail" > "Storage" and consider deleting old emails or purchasing additional storage if necessary.
  5. Confirm sender details: The sender might have entered your email address incorrectly, or their email could have bounced back as undeliverable. Request the sender to double-check the email address they used to send the email.

If none of these solutions resolve the issue, consider reaching out to Outlook technical support for further assistance.
