• At first it stopped getting all my mails from all my hotmail/outlook related account, so I removed it from the preferences
  • Then now I am trying to add it back and it's giving me this screen.

If anyone else had that issue please help fix it.

NB: Be gentle please I am a noob 🙏

    You can't add a hotmail account as Exchange.. Try the "outlook.com" type account or "other"... I can't test now, but hotmail is not Exchange type unless something changed recently... – Tyson Dec 23 '16 at 2:48
  • That did help actually, thanks! So what I did is to set up a not exchange account just a normal email and it did it magic. – Second Son Dec 23 '16 at 13:26

I set up the normal way, just add email and it did it magic.


Well someone mentioned that it shouldn't be an exchange account, for what's worth I did the set up 2~3 years ago I couldn't remember. So what I did is:

1. Go to system preferences > Internet Accounts > Add other accounts

2. Then select Mail Account

That's it.
