Outlook 2010 MicrosoftAccount Prefix

I am attempting to connect my new windows 10 computer running Outlook 2010 to my Exchange server. It is Exchange 2013. When I first start Outlook it goes through the auto config to create the profile but stops on the final connection and a credentials box comes up with MicrosoftAccount\myemailaddress.com and asks for the password. The password that I would assume it wants is not the same as my domain login password. Any help with this would be appreciated.

I have deleted the profile and cleared all my windows credentials but it keeps doing this.

I have attached a file of the screen I am getting.

I see absolutely no problems here. This combo is often used and I see no bugs or anything. I only see a login problem, where you yourself already tell us you're not sure of the correct username/password. Your domain/mail admin or your email provider should know this best. For Experts here, it's just guess work. Username/password combinations are quite exact science. Guessing is of little use, if you have the official credentials already a phone call away.

It's got to be some type of naming convention mismatch.  have you tried the following for the user name:

username only

I am sure of my domain login password. It allows me to login and I can browse and access network resources. My PC that I replaced set up with no issues. It was a Windows 7 machine.
