  2. Also, if your network downloading speed is slow, you’ll face issues while logging into your account. So, if this happens, you should reconnect your device to a new network. 
  3. You’ll also need to check that if you’re working on an updated version of the OS. In case your OS isn’t updated, you can try a system update to avoid any issues. 
  4. In addition, ensure that the mobile app that you’re using to add the account is updated. For example, if you’re working on Outlook, check for its latest update in the app store. Then, update it to fix the issue. 
  5. Make sure that you’ve correctly configured your account. If there is any problem with account service type settings, then you’ll have to reconfigure your account.
