    Ive looked around and not found answers to my problem.

    I've had my 520 for just over a month and o have my Microsoft /outlook account on it but I simply cannot get it to work for the life of me.

    It won't sync I always get errors, I cannot receive or send email......yet my Gmail works like a charm albeit with crappy syncing due to windowsphone backend stuff.

    If someone can help me it would be appreciated.

    It should also be noted I can log on to my Microsoft account via PC and view the two welcome emails but I can still not send or receive.

    If it is a new Microsoft account I would create another one to see if you get same result.

    Try changing your server to dub-m.hotmail.com

    That's what mine is set to. Worth a quick try.

    The advice I've seen regarding this issue is doing a reset on the phone. It appears the only way to fix it. If you haven't got much personal data on there I would suggest doing that.

    There was one thing I found for WP7 with the same error. Seems a bit drawn out.
