    Username or password incorrect when setting up mail and Skype accounts

    Windows veteran but Android novice here; Xoom new out of the box yesterday. I am hitting a wall when trying to set up Plusnet and Hotmail email accounts and Skype.
    I only manage to enter account name and password and the message "setup could not finish; username or password incorrect" appears. I have seen countless cases of users seeking help on the web but cannot find a thread to the problem on this site.
    I guess this may be a permissions problem or something very simple but I need some help to get around it. I have tried setup many times over the last 30 hours but always with the same result.
    I read that Hotmail is not supported and this may be the case but I really would like to set up email and Skype as a priority.
    I have downloaded K9 and this suffers the same fate.

    Welcome to the forum. Both Hotmail and Skype work without issue on mine. Not sure what the problem could be.

    Thanks jblalock77. I went back to these accounts today and I have managed to set them all up.
    I guess a new day has made the difference or I just did it correctly this time.

    Glad you got it working.
