This just started happening today - I bring up outlook, and it says "a connection to the server cannot be established. mail.hughes.net is now disconnected"

My work arounds, some of which I've instituted since the COVID telework/homeschooling demand problem began have been:
Perhaps these tips might help others.
Cheers, and keep washing those hands and wearing your masks! Thanks to all the engineers who are keeping things running as best they can.
