That setup works fine on my desktop for the verizon account.
If you are trying to add accounts other than the verizon one there will be slight variations such as the incoming mail server and the outgoing smtp port.
I have the same problem. However I cannot click on "file" because when I open Outlook 2010 it immediately takes me to a setup page where I enter the info and click next. When I get to the end and click on the "test settings" button, it says the same thing -- sever not available.

You will have a much easier time if you ignore the automatic email account setup in Outlook 2010 and opt for the manual setup. It's a bit tricky to locate the correct options, so just keep plugging away. When using the manual setup, just make sure you enter the suggested pop/smtp setting and ports, plus SSL security, and you will be good to go.
