  19. RetiredII: I have been having problems the last couple of days with Outlook. It seems that every thing has cleared up except that the new format “keep me signed in” is not working. It is a pain and waste of time to sign every time I open Outlook. All so I have experienced being taken back to ”sign in” while going through my mail. Why is this?
  20. Tom Peca: Outlook has been down all day – March 22, 2017. This is becoming a very big problem. Note to others: I downloaded the Blue Mail app from google play and it is really smooth w some great delete features.. I can get to all my MSN account E-mails on my mobile w The Blue Mail App. I pay MSN extra for (Space) for outlook because I maintain hundreds of folders to support my business. The constant downtime for Outlook has a lot of people scratching their heads and looking long term to take another path to a more dependable Email System.
