    From what I've read it seems related to apps. If possible try turning off the syncing of apps/data like bing/MSN news for example and see if that works. Might also be worthwhile disabling text backup in settings although I think this one results in a different error code.

    You're lucky. My account stopped syncing six weeks ago. Senders receiving "550 mailbox unavailable" bounces. Can't get ANYONE at Microsoft to take this seriously. WTF

    I have the same issue. Mine only syncs when I'm connected to my works WiFi which is pointless. Don't know how to fix it. Very frustrating.

    What version of Outlook are you using? That makes a big difference in how to resolve a sync issue. If you have 2007 or 2010, you need the Hotmail connector installed on your computer.

    I sync to Outlook on my computers which have Gmail and Outlook accounts. This keeps all my mail and contacts updated across all of my devices. If you aren't doing that and just using the simple interface on the phone, after removing and re-installing the account it should work, but it looks like you have already done that. Only a guess, but Microsoft probably changed some settings. I would lose the MSN account for mail and only use an outlook.com account. I would be surprised if a phone reset would help on this.

    No I have hard reset the phone more times in the last 4 days I at the point of throwing the dam thing to the moon ! I need to have my MSN account the primary /sign in account when setting up the phone because it hold me account info. If i don't not only will my apps list not come up but my game, music purchase etc with any other account and they are not transferable from account to account. My MSN account is the account i have used since sigin up to MSn over 15 yrs ago - it's my Windows login for evey Windows OS since Win XP the thats also tied to my paypal /Microsoft store account and it has been my phone account from the Lumia 820 to the Lumia 925 to go with another account wipes out my ability to sync with my desktop account , tablet Xbox 360 and all those billing/purchases history

    Microsoft are morons! I went to windowsphone.com contacted to a tech support via Online chat they did absolutely crap for me sent me over to accounts which they determined there was nothing wrong with my account ( previously thought it might have been a charge back conflict for the Music Subscription ) said that outlook was the support to talk to transferred me to outlook.com to which 2 India support techs passed me from one to the other where the last one ( including the first ) said they don't deal with it and began to argue with me that Windows Phone support doesn't have an online support so that was impossible for me to have spoken to them through that venue. I reached out To Xbox Accounts/Live and was sent back to Phone support to which they said they only are for the hardware aspect of the devices ..again sent through to accounts ( even though syncing/calender/emails )is an option given I was told nope sorry can't help me that they are exclusivily for desktop support if i can't sign in via the Browser!! I mean this went on for 4 hrs via Transferred through a god dam Chat Windows ! Minus the Outlook support link!! bouncing ! Unfreaking real !!

    The most common reason I've seen for sync issues is an incorrect date or time setting. Be sure your date, time, and time zone are correct.

    That is a sign of a DNS error if things work on another network. Are you using your internet provider's DNS settings? If so, try changing your home WIFI to Google's DNS, turn off carrier data on your phone using only WIFI, and see what happens.

    col401-m.hotmail.com is the server having the issue :an Microsoft author gave me a Wiki link said it very well could be a corrupt OS I tried wifi and data both didn't change it to a Google DNA As soon as i did a recovery ( back to Toilet Mobile Windows 8 OS ) within secs it synced ! Go freaking figure. As much as i loved the tutorial in flashing the device to Cyan and the hard reset I did prior when i was running Dp I will continue to wait instead of dealing with that nightmare ever again - to much time and stress/anger - I have 4 kids i don't need the hassle lol btw yes my times zones were fine everything was spot on no issues

    Just tried adding my outlook email to my winphone (Lumia 822 on VZW) and got a similar if not the same issue. All of a sudden my primary Microsoft account on the phone (my Hotmail) wouldn't sync and had issues. While I tried very little to see about correcting it, I ended up deleting the outlook email account from the phone and that fixed the problem. I'm guessing that the two accounts are fighting over resources somehow. Just a thought, since both are MSFT. I DO RECALL back when outlook.com was first coming out and MSFT said they would be converting all the accounts that there was a message sent to those that had a windows phone and a Hotmail account to hold off with converting, as it would cause serious problems with the account. I don't know if that issue was ever resolved.

    I have, like you guys reset my phone numerous times and I get these endless syncs that last for hours and run the batter down in a few hours at most. I have hard reset the phone 8 times so frat. Recently went and installed the preview edition to see if there was a change in behavior at all. NONE.

    I have a LIVE account of course but it dates back to an original MSN.com address. I assume it is upgraded to OUTLOOK.COM but I have no idea how to confirm that. I have over 11,000 twitter followers, a bunch of Facebook and linked in as well tied to the Live Account, so I thought maybe the sync there was an issue, but I can't delete the connections. Keep getting an error that it can't delete them. I went in the phone side and thought I would remove the email account to MSN and try my work POP account, but I do not have an option to delete the outlook account.

    I am now resetting the phone one more time, I guess I am testing Einstein's theory of insanity, and am waiting to see if the twitter and LinkedIn accounts sync and then will let me remove them.

    I love the Windows Phone system, and find it much more capable than the IPhone but if this keeps up I'll have to revery. I can't spend most of my time resetting the F'N phone.

    To be clear, I can't remove from either the Live Web side or the phone side, and I have no option to delete the live (outlook) email and reinstall it. This is my third Lumia phone, two 930s each had batter probes after 6 to 7 months and were replaced, after the last one I had AT&T give me a 1020 as an upgrade, its again about 6 months. This is getting really old and very frustrating.

    You are right that no one at Microsoft takes this issue seriously. I'm on my second phone and have spent 4 days on the phone with Verizon, Nokia and Microsoft to no avail. We were transferred to Microsoft by a level 2 Verizon tech and then put on hold for 1 hour 40 minutes then disconnected.
