Microsoft Outlook/Error 0x80040900


I use Microsoft Outlook 2010 in a brand new Windows 8 environment. I have 3 different addresses but I am not able to get or send messages from . With the other two addresses all works (one is a local provider and the other is .com). The error message says 0x80040900. It looks that the problem come from time-out lenght, but I don't know where to change this detail. Any help? Thanks a lot.
