eM Client will not sync my Hotmail account in the intial set up

I have just started eM Client and my hotmail account will not sync properly. I have received the folders and the contacts but there is nothing in the folders.It looks like it just just times out and losses conection ( Please see the error message below )I have tried to change the mail settings to Exchange  bu t it does not like my password. Any thoughts?

You do need to setup the account as Exchange.  this will also allow you to sync contacts and calendars.  I am not a Hotmail user, but you may have to get an app-specific password (2-step authentication) for it to work.
