Nope - your solution still did not fix the issue. I’m still repeatedly getting this response:
"An operation on the server timed out. The server may be down, overloaded, or there may be too much net traffic."
Error Code: -3259
It simply will not connect to the server.
And if I change the port to 993 in outgoing I get this:
Cannot send mail. The SMTP server does not recognize any of the authentication methods supported by Outlook. Try changing the SMTP authentication options in Account settings or contact your network administrator. (I have no network administrator - it’s a personal Mac)
