That is most probably a temporary fault: the security certificate presented by the server you connected to did not match the URL you are using to connect to it. Since you're using DeltaSync, this should all happen automatically and there must have been a hiccup at the particular server where your account is hosted. If it doesn't come right after a few hours, post back. Meanwhile, try closing down Windows Live Mail and waiting a few minutes before re-launching and trying again.
