Not sure, what order should I do it in

delete the account. make sure it leaves the accounts and passwords section. then restart your phone then add it back. hotmail auto configures. So if it doesn't take then something is stuck in the mail folder. The last step if this doesn't work is to erase the phone as mail has corrupted.

Erase all content and settings. Start over. Manually migrate data.
