Windows 8 RTM - Mail App - Unable to add my 1&1 email account

I'm unable to add my email account to the mail application


my email account is hosted through 1&1 - but it simply won't add the account ( and

I can access via webmail, and my windows phone 7 accesses the account, also it works via outlook 2003 - but not through the new windows 8 app.


Any ideas as to what I can do to get this working.


P.s my username/email account are on a different domain name than the mail servers as I have a domain hosted at 1&1
