Setting up a Microsoft Exchange account

I cannot seem to setup a Microsoft Exchange account for  my work account. When I click to create a new account, (I already have my gmail account setup) I type in the exchange email, but it fails to setup/create.  THoughts? 

Did you use automatic setup, or the exchange option?

Exchange setting… It either fails to “find” server OR authentication fails, but I have checked my authentication by using exchange via my browser and is fine… I guess I will try to figure out what the manual server entry is. 

Make sure that if it asks for your account name, use your entire email address (e.g., john.doe@hotmail.com), not just your base user name (john.doe).
