Big bug found with office 2013 win 8 and phones If you reinstall to many times this will happen to you beware
I started receiving the same issue. I formatted my hard drive and installed Windows 8 Pro and Office 2013 Pro Plus RTM, then the issues begun.
Outlook 2013 says I have too many devices connected to my account and same with the Mail app.
Only way I can check my email is logging in via Internet Explorer.
When I manage my account, I only have my Windows 7 and this Windows 8 Pro PC Win Phone 7.5 trusted on my account.

I had this issue, but I had to delete all sub folders from outlook leaving only the inbox. I just moved all the other emails I had in the other folders I deleted the inbox folder and search for what I need when I need it.

I'm guessing noone who complained about this bug actually tried calling MS about it and just had it fixed instead of whining on the internet, right ...

Bug who appears after you've re-installed windows 8 several times with HDD formatting? Sounds legit.

It would be funny if it only effected the people who thinks it's a good idea to reinstall windows every month.

Not really had any driver issues with any of my computers on windows 8, and testing the OS does not mean you reinstall a lot, if you reinstall to switch OS' you run dual boot. there's really no reason to reinstall a lot, especially since windows 8 also comes with the refresh function.
