Hotmail Services Back Online And Working

Microsoft moved quickly today on bringing the Hotmail services back online.  For a couple of hours today, Hotmail services were unavailable due to server problems at Microsoft.

But Microsoft moved quickly on the problems and restored the services.

Microsoft released the following statement about the incident:

“This morning, around 9:30am PST, the Windows Live ID sign-in service experienced a partial outage that caused some customers to not be able to sign into services using Windows Live ID for approximately one hour … The service is now restored to normal. Microsoft apologizes for any inconvenience this has caused customers.”
