I installed almost all of my email accounts in the native Windows 10 Mail function without problems.  The one that won't install is myname@outlook.com.   The error message is:


"Something went wrong…

We're sorry, but we weren't able to do that

Error code 0x8000ffff"


I re-tried several time, using a few of the alternate account types suggested by the Add Account feature, but this account simply won't install.  


If there is no solution, I can live with it.  I'll just go online to get those emails.  But it would be nice to have them all on one client.


If anyone can suggest a desktop email client that will handle 8 accounts in the free version, please suggest.
