Hi, I'm not sure what troubleshooting you have tried.
My first suggestion is to soft reset your phone and try to sync your mail again. You may get prompted to change your password.

I am having the same issue on my L950. It keeps saying "the account requires attention". I go in, login again with my credentials. My email will work for a brief period of time (for the initial synch), then it does the same thing over...and over...and over.
