Connecting to Microsoft Email Servers

Please use the following link to check if Two-step verification is enabled

If it is not enabled enable it and then click on app passwords and create a new one

  • SMTP Host:
  • SMTP Port: 587
  • TLS Protocol: Explicit TLS
  • SMTP Username: (your Microsoft email)
  • SMTP Password: (your Application Password)

Still no luck? Check with your host if they have port 587 blocked by a firewall.

  • POP3 Host:
  • POP3 Port: 995
  • TLS Protocol: Explicit TLS
  • POP3 Username: (your Microsoft email)
  • POP3 Password: (your Application Password)

Enable POP access in

  1. If you want to use POP to access your email in, you'll first need to enable POP access.
  2. Select Settings Settings > View all Outlook settings > Mail > Sync email.
  3. Under POP and IMAP, select Yes under Let devices and apps use POP.
  4. Select Save.

  • IMAP4 Host:
  • IMAP4 Port: 993
  • Encryption: Implicit TLS
  • IMAP4 Username: (your Microsoft email)
  • IMAP4 Password: (your Application Password)

When Two-step verification is disabled you can still access Microsoft email by using an ordinary password.
