Adding an outlook.com account with multifactor auth to Outlook 2016 RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I try to add my outlook account to Outlook2016 I got to the "We're getting things ready" dialog, and the "Windows security"/"Mail Application" dialog pops up prompting me for password. The email address is set to MicrosoftAccount\[myEmail]@hotmail.com, and I type my password and hit Ok. But the same dialog comes back over and over.

    I know I typed it right, so I was thinking it might have to do with multi-factor authentication which I have enabled for the account. If that is the case, is there a way around it?

    Any ideas?
