Hi Philtonite,

I know you posted a while back so you may have found a solution to this problem, but I came across you post when I too got the same error message.

I got no joy searching for a solution online for this specific problem.  However, when I tried to set up Mac Mail, it too rejected my hotmail password.  I found a solution for this and it seems that was the problem with document connection too...

It turns out that the Mac doesn't like passwords that are too long.  I've had issues with email hacking in the past so always choose a long password.  However, so I could use Mac Mail and document connection, I have changed it too a shorter one and this has solved the problem!

Hope it works for you too if you hadn't already worked it out.

D :)
