    Outlook has been nothing less than steller for me it has never crashed and I feel its a better product than Gmail and their privacy intrusions.

    On the other hand, what does this have to do with a Lumia 920...?
    Huh? I didn't see any mention of a 920 from the OP.

    So I have been trying to switch from gmail to outlook.com. I have given it a month but I am switching back.
    I really like the look of outlook and will maybe try it again in a month or so, but right now it seems much too buggy.
    In the last 48hrs it has been down/off and on for hours at a time. The search functionality almost never works and always asks for me to refresh the page.
    There may be some other oddities that I found but the above are the two deal breakers for me at this point.
    Anyone else had issues or is it just me?
    I'm guessing you're having issues on some type of PC? I haven't had any issues on my Surface, desktop pc or on my phone.

    So I hard reset my 920 today to see if that would help. Thank god it didnt brick like my last one. Anyways, I still can not access my microsoft account. Really frustrating as a lot of my contacts are associated with that account. It has now been 3 days without any access to my outlook.com account... Not cool at all.

    My issues are with my phone, my email and my microsoft account. My phone is not recognizing my microsoft account that I set up when I first bought the 920 in november.

    Never had a problem with Outlook. Even my wife has switched from gmail to Outlook to make it her primary email system. It just works. Yours is probably an account problem.

    Never had an outage for me. I expect there may be some hiccups a long the way as MS cleans up and retires hotmail, etc.

    Either way, after using Gmail for years I'm never going back. Outlook is amazing, easy to use, beautiful, and overall a much better experience IMO.

    I prefer Outlook.com aesthetics over Gmail, but it has at least 50% less functionality at this point. I still will have both accounts, but Gmail will remain my primary for a long time.

    I hate the new outlook.com. I wish I could switch back to the old live/hotmail look and feel at least.

    According to the update on this link, outlook can be accessed again.

    Like what? I find Outlook far more functional, but maybe its because I could never figure out the UI on Gmail.

    I've migrated over from Gmail only to discover that POP mail is checked every 30 minutes (!).

    There are no ways to force it to check either.

    This would have been OK 15 years ago.
