Is anyone else having trouble adding the new @Outlook.com email accounts to Outlook?

I'm running Outlook 2010 Pro on a Win7 Pro platform.

I attempt to add the new @Outlook email account via File>Account Settings>Email>New.

Outlook cannot connect to the Outlook.com server with either an encrypted and an unencrypted protocol and ends up after several attempts, prompting me to enter the protocol parameters manually.

Does anyone else have this issue?

If not, does anyone know all the Server parameters required to connect to Outlook.com?

Thanks for your time.

Thank you for your suggestion - it worked almost perfectly!

The only trouble that remains is that Outlook is not syncronizing all the folders with Outlook.com. Namely, the Sent Items folder does not update any messages sent from the webserver, only the ones sent from Outlook itself. I looked at the Send/Receive>Send/Receive Groups>Define Groups in Outlook and found that the Inbox is the only one listed for syncronization and I'm not certain how to get Outlook to add the remaining Outlook.com folders to that list of folders to syncronize.

Also, deleting messages from Outlook, does not remove them from Outlook.com.

Any suggestions?
