    hi there, thanks for laying this out. i have closely followed the instructions and have attempted this six times and i still get this message: ‘Send test email message: Cannot find the email server. Verify the server information in your account properties.’ i had saved my original .ost file to add contacts, calendar, etc., but to no avail. Any thoughts?

      Did you go-to the advanced settings menu and set the “Outgoing Mail Server” port settings as given in the post above? See step 9. Let me know, Thanks!

        Thanks. I figured out I did wrong… I transposed SMTP! All is well. Like your site!

    Thanks very much for making this guide, but i can’t get this to work, and don’t understand one part. In Step 9 it says “Set the encryption type to SSL or TLS”. Where do you make this setting? It looks like the only place you can choose between the two is the same box that you say in Step 10 should be set to “auto”.
