    I had the exact same problem yesterday, while helping my daughter with her outlook email account. I ended up, after several attempts to get them to text me the code, choosing the "call" option and it worked immediately and I was able to get on with my life. I thought it might be a temporary thing but I needed some prompt resolution and that seemed to do the trick.
