Ifølge Chris Jones fra Microsoft, var det en load balancing fejl mellem to servere, der var skyld i at mange Hotmail brugere mistede mails i weekenden.
Der skulle være 17335 berørte Hotmail kontoer, men ifølge Microsoft skulle de manglende mails nu være på plads igen.
Beginning on December 30th we had an issue with Windows Live Hotmail that impacted 17,355 accounts. Customers impacted temporarily lost the contents of their mailbox through the course of mailbox load balancing between servers. We identified the root cause and restored mail to the impacted accounts as of yesterday evening, January 2nd. As with all incidents like this, we will fully investigate the cause and will take steps to prevent this from happening again. We’re very sorry for the inconvenience this may have caused to you, our customers and partners.
