Microsoft | Tweet

The vendor tweeted to say that the company is currently investigating the email visibility issue. It also mentioned that Outlook on the mobile and web is unaffected and can be used as a temporary alternative for the time being. 

However, some users have questioned Microsoft’s claim that the client is working fine on the web. It appears that Outlook is working fine on Google’s Chrome but facing the same issues on Microsoft’s Edge. 

The computer giant said that users would be required to restart Outlook to resolve the ongoing issue once the fix is rolled out. Further, in some cases, users might have to restart the client a second time to see the changes. 

Users Left Fuming

Millions of Microsoft users have taken to social media to voice their anger at the issue. A lot of users are concerned about the impact of this blip on their work schedules. 

Applications such as Microsoft Outlook are packed with a bunch of communication tools. Disruption in the services of any one of the tools could affect the working order and lead to undesired consequences. 

Microsoft issued another update stating that it is on track to fix the problem in the hours to come.
