Outlook 2016 Sending Error

I am using Outlook 2016 and always get an error anytime sending/receiving as follows:

!Task (e-mail address) Sending reported error (080042108): The operation timed out waiting for a response from the sending (SMTP) server.


My settings are as follows"

Account type: IMAP

Incoming Mail Server:

Incoming Server: IMAP port.993


Out server: SMTP port 587*


Anyone have an idea how to fix this error or whose problem it really is, Spectrum or Microsoft?

Re: Outlook 2016 Sending Error



It looks like you might have a trailing * after port 587 that is not needed.  If there is a * in your configuration, please remove it, save the revised settings and try sending another email.  Let us know if you continue to get the same error.
