Update - Update from Microsoft:

Title: Users may be unable to access their Exchange Online mailbox

User Impact: Users attempting to access their mailbox using any connection method may experience failures.

More info: Users experiencing failure may see a timeout or Active Directory overload exception.

Current status: Our continued investigation into the root cause of impact found that recent adjustments to the impacted infrastructure, designed to improve communications between components of the service, caused authentication requests to stop entirely, resulting in impact. We have corrected these changes, and have confirmed that it has mitigated impact for all but a single section of the degraded infrastructure. We understand that the impact during this issue has been significant and we are restarting the remaining affected infrastructure in an effort to fully remediate impact.

Scope of impact: This issue impacts any user attempting to access their Exchange Online mailbox.

Start time: Friday, January 15, 2021, at 12:10 AM UTC

Root cause: Our Active Directory service was not properly authenticating users into their mailboxes as expected, causing impact.
