I am not able to successfully set up my IMAP email accounts in  I get an SMTP error message when I use either outgoing port numbers 587 or 465.  The incoming mail settings seem to work fine.  I also have those accounts successfully set up in Outlook 2016 and Outlook for Android.  Has anyone else encountered this problem and successfully resolved it?

      I've done that several times with no success.  It doesn't like the SMTP server settings.

    I am having the same issue. I have tried multiple times using the Outlook auto-setup as well as the manual way through the control panel ( create new profile). This is on a brand new Win 10 with Outlook 2016 (365)
