    I renamed my Hotmail account to an outlook.com account.
    I reset my phone and entered my new email address in the initial startup wizard.
    I did not get any errors.

    However, when the initial startup wizard completed, I have no way of reading my email

    My tile for email says "Email setup"

    I do have my contacts but I don't have any way to read or send email.
    I tried adding a Windows Live account but it says that the account name is already setup.

    Does anyone know how to correct this problem?

    Go to Settings - Accounts , Select Live Account and set the mark in Syncronize E-Mail.

    It is missing as default.

    In the email account settings, the checkbox for "Content to sync" was not checked. I checked it and now I can read email. I don't know why it was not checked by default.
