em client will not set up an account for outlook.com as an exchange server which it is. Outlook desktop does.

I must be mistaken and would really like to hear how to fix this. If I go to manual install, it then tells me that server was located but authentication was not accepted, even thogh name and password were absolutely correct. Thanks.

Make sure when you setup the account as an Exchange account that you use your full email address as the user name.
