Email Settings for Outlook

0 comments
This seems to be a huge problem, where the vast majority of email providers don't setup their systems to automatically get settings to outlook (autoconfiguration file), so I've compiled a small list of providers and their settings.  Almost all that support IMAP, also support Pop (usually by changing the imap portion of the address to pop... as an example AT&T would go from imap.mail.att.net to pop.mail.att.net).  One thing that I've noticed though is that while the IMAP and POP settings for encryption are almost always SSL at 993, when it comes to the SMTP settings, some like AT&T advertise theirs as 465 at SSL, but I've found that sometimes it works and sometimes you need to set it to TLS or Auto or even change the port entirely to 587.  If it's a bellsouth.net address, I almost always set AT&T settings to 587 with encryption at Auto.
