Some believe that Microsoft’s decision to keep the reason for the outage secret may be to prevent hackers from recognizing the loopholes. But there is no dearth for rumours in the tech world. A popular tech journal recently said recently that the frequent outage issues that facing could be because of the newly added features in As we are not sure of the reasons behind these Outlook problems, we don’t endorse such reports.
