Ubuntu Timeout Outlook Mail24 Nov 2017
I am a freelance web developer. E Mail is a very important part of my business. But suddenly I was not able to access MS Outlook (web) in my Ubuntu machine. But then I heard the notification from my Windows box. I checked and both the Mail client and the web app were working fine.
I searched the web. A Ask Ubuntu answer said to setup the DNS server. That didn’t work for me.
Then I did a
wget to find out if it was related to a browser.
The output of
wget suggested that it was getting redirected to
https://login.microsoftonline.com. Then time outs.
Then I loaded the URL. After a few seconds of resolving domain name it redirected to the dashboard. I noticed that in the Windows machine the redirect is almost instantaneous. Not sure what is up. It looks like a DNS issue. How ever now I can check my mail.
