Thanks for that Nathan, I am out and about right now will try this later today. I am sure there is no proxy set but never know one of my sons may have added one for some reason known only to the gods.

The only device this is not working on is my Surface 3, it works on my Windows PC and my iMac.  I am wondering do I need to do a reset on the Surface.

I have resolved this, I created a local account on the surface, removed the Microsoft account. Added the MSFT account again installed Office 365 and it has activated.
