Cant add Live account to email.

Wiped Playbook OS 2 and everything worked fine with the exception of a Live account for email.  After putting username and password and hitting save it gives me this error message.  Account Live- ********* failed testing with current settings. I have wiped again, restarted but no matter it always ends with this error message..   Any ideas...

Forgot to add. I have wiped this thing twice before and the email always worked fine.

Nope. Download K-9 mail and it works fine that way...
