Outlook 2013 too many devices synching with your account error

microsoft-outlook-2013

When I add an outlook.com account I get this error:

Error Code: 0x80004005 Too many devices synching with your account

I definitely do not have multiple devices synching with this account… I searched online and it looks like this error has something to do with number of folders in the email. However, this is a fresh account. I only have the default folders in there.

Any idea how to fix this?

Known issue with Microsoft. There is a forum post here which you should comment on which will allow MS to do some back end update to your account to resolve this issue.
