Sometimes while trying to open the outlook page it gives you an error page stating that the page cannot be displayed. What does it mean? It means that you are not able to connect yourself to the outlook server. It could be due to low internet speed or the browser. All you have to do is check the internet if it’s working fine.
Just to make sure reboot the router once and also the computer. If it doesn’t resolve the outlook problem, take a look into the settings of that particular browser. Go to the settings and reset the browser. Also make sure not to delete the personal settings as it might remove all the bookmarks and the saved pages from the browser. Clean the browser just to remove the cookies, caches, history and temporary files. Once done restart the browser and try to open the outlook again. That should definitely resolve the outlook problem.
In the last couple of weeks it has been notice that people are having hard time to even open the outlook sign in page. Every time they open the page it gives them an error saying the connection to this server is not private or the connection is not private, it also gives a red sign on the top left corner saying Not Secure. This could be due to the antivirus or protection installed on the computer blocking the connection to establish in a secure mode.
Check the protection installed. Reset the browser once and clean it. Try using different browser to make sure it’s not due to any application installed on the computer. The internet connection that you are using could also be one the reason you are having this outlook problem. The internet used fails to load the DNS server and hence the connection turns into an unsecured connection. The solution to that is reboot the router once and reboot the computer too, when you restart the computer go to internet connection settings and under the properties of IP address version 4 and check the DNS settings. If the DNS setting is in automatically obtain from the network mode then it is fine.
