As the company attempting fix problems some users may be receiving excessive amounts spam mails reads a warning on Microsoft Outlook’s service status site.

Microsoft added that they are implementing two fixes. One will provide short term relief preventing spam reaching your inbox, second would be a long term fix which should stop spam reaching your infrastructure.

For the time being Microsoft is in the middle of migrating its Outlook.com backend over to its Office 365 service, but it’s not clear if this migration is related to today’s spam issues.
