Try setting it up with Service:Other (I believe it is), then configure the mail settings manually. I had to do this to get Gmail working on it.

Under Incoming:: Make sure IMAP is selected. Enter “imap-mail.outlook.de” for Server hostname. Select “993” as the Port. Make sure SSL/TLS is selected for SSL.

Under Outgoing:: Enter “smtp-mail.outlook.de” for Server hostname. Select “587” as the Port. Make sure STARTTLS is selected for SSL.


Servidor de IMAP: imap-mail.outlook.com Puerto de IMAP: 993 Cifrado: SSL

Servidor de SMTP: smtp-mail.outlook.com Puerto de SMTP: 587 Cifrado: STARTTLS
