    Issues with hotmail accounts with Outlook 2016

    I have many hotmail accounts (over 10) and was using Windows Live Mail 2012. Because WLM stopped support for ActiveSync, I switched to Outlook 2016. One issue I see is when I add my hotmail accounts to outlook, some are setup as "Microsoft Exchange" and some are "Exchange ActiveSync". On one o fmy PC, everything seems to work fine but not the 2nd one. Most hotmail accounts on my 2nd PC ended up being "Microsoft Exchange" and I hit the outlook limit on # of MS Exchange account Outlook will support. Anyway to force Outlook to set these up as ActiveSync.

    ETA: Use manual configuration with s.outlook.com as mail server will setup hotmail account for ActiveSync and not MS Exchange.
