Client Notifiable Alerts

These alerts may be updated as info comes to hand, they're presented for your convenience and to facilitate easy messaging.

The alerts on this page are those that we have broadcast to our user base from time to time. Such broadcasts will usually take the form of SMS or email.

We will do our best to update these alerts as we gather more knowledge about them but we make no promise to address these in real time as these are not populated by automated “feeds” from sources, they are manually updated.

Please also note that we will not re-post every alert or blip that we see across the IT landscape, these are simply the MAJOR issues we’ve already notified customers about.

This was False Alert caused by some of our largest ISPs having issues with network routing to Microsoft.
12/05/2021MSFT_EXOEX255650Ongoing, Resolution being applied - end user workaround is mobile apps or Outlook Online.
Microsoft have identified a resolution and are applying a patch which is expected to take 4 to 5 hours to complete (see details page - click link for more).
Issue - Outlook messages failing to display content (may be blank)...
Note: Outlook Online is always the master, what's there is all that counts, Outlook on desktop is merely a window into your Exchange Mailbox online...
