Yesterday millions of people were unable to use Microsoft's MSN Messenger service due to some data center issues.
A company representative declined to elaborate on the nature of the problem, or the steps Microsoft took in fixing it. In an earlier statement, the representative said the outage was caused by an "isolated issue that we've located in the data center."

The problem had affected a "significant" number of MSN Messenger users intermittently since Monday afternoon, the representative said.
