If you're facing error "Sorry, we are having some temporary server issues", then this fix will help you to fix it by resetting Internet Explorer settings.

No doubt, Office 2013 is the best of Microsoft Office you can get right now. When you install the Office 2013, it asks you to sign-in using Microsoft account so that you can save your documents to SkyDrive. Add to this, you can share your documents to various social sites once you’ve been signed in. However, sometimes you might face the issues while sign-in. Yesterday, I got an error while signing-in to my Microsoft Office 2013 products, each time it says:

Sorry, we are having some temporary server issues.

Although the error message says to have temporary issue but it looks like it becomes permanent issue. I tried to switch different WiFi networks and Ethernet connections but the problem still persisted. I also tried to re-install the Office suite, but unfortunately it didn’t helped me. Lastly, I came around this answer at Microsoft Community and it helped me solve the issue:

 FIX : “Sorry, We Are Having Some Temporary Server Issues”

1. Press Windows Key + R and type inetcpl.cpl in the Run dialog box and press Enter key / click OK.

2. In the Internet Options window, switch to Advanced tab. Click Reset under the hood of Reset Internet Explorer settings.

3. Now in the following window, checking Delete personal settings is optional, finally click Reset.

Once you have clicked Reset in above window, you’ll see a Command Prompt window for few seconds and then this:

4. After clicking Close in the above shown box, you’ll be prompted to restart the system. Thus, make a reboot and your problem should be fixed by now.

That’s it!

  • Yep, that worked. Weird fix and very frustrating. Unfortunately, my company uses Office 365. Thanks for the post!
