One Drive unable to setup with Office 365 Account

A client has a couple of Office 365 (E-mail only) accounts.
He wanted to install the free base version of One Drive but it wouldn't accept his Office 365 username/passwords.
Does the e-mail only part of Office 365 bar you from using One Drive?

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The consumer version of OneDrive uses the "Windows LIVE ID" authentication service, and Office 365 uses the Azure based Active Directory Authentication, and the two don't talk to each other...  

Your users can create free LIVE ID accounts using their Office 365 email address, and then open a consumer OneDrive account, but if they do, I would suggest using a different password on that service, so that they remember that it is really a different account.
