Hello!

We were unable to reach your email provider. Please check your server settings, or try again later.

 

I take the details from here: https://support.office.com/el-gr/article/%CE%A1%CF%85%CE%B8%CE%BC%CE%AF%CF%83%CE%B5%CE%B9%CF%82-pop-...

@Kwstas Kwstas Did you use autoaccount setup ? That should set it up correctly. If autoaccount setup doesnt work, do you use 2-factor authentication on the account you are trying to add?

@Diane Poremsky 

I am running into an identical issue trying to add a second account to my https://outlook.live.com.

The second account is a corporate account using https://outlook.office365.com and I am able to login to the corporate account using the credentials.

The corporate account has 2FA authentication and I am using Microsoft Authenticator mobile app on iPhone to complete authentication when using https://outlook.office365.com.

When I am trying to add the corporate account with the same credentials that worked on https://outlook.office365.com to my https://outlook.live.com account it fails with the following message:

{
"Header": {
"ServerVersionInfo": {
"MajorVersion": 15,
"MinorVersion": 20,
"MajorBuildNumber": 3088,
"MinorBuildNumber": 28,
"Version": "V2018_01_08"
}
},
"ErrorCode": 2,
"ErrorMessage": "We were unable to reach your email provider. Please check your server settings, or try again later.",
"IsUserError": false,
"UserPrompt": null,
"WasSuccessful": false,
"AutoProvisionFailed": false,
"SyncRequest": null
}

 

The corporate login web page does not even show up.

I have double-checked the settings on the corporate account and it does have IMAP access enabled.

I have manually entered the server names, ports, and encryption settings as listed under settings on https://outlook.office365.com web-site and it did not solve the problem.

The account is not configured to prevent IMAP access as I have confirmed by installing Microsoft Outlook on a brand new Windows and MacOS computers and was able to connect to the corporate account.
I have been also able to add a different corporate account using office365 to my outlook live account.
