Step Five: Now you will see the settings for that PRIMARY OUTGOING SERVER: 

Make sure that: 

  • SSL is OFF.
  • Authentication is set to "PASSWORD"
  • Outgoing Port is set to "587" 

Step Six: And don't forget to enter your new password!

Click "Done"

If it does NOT verify, then something is wrong.

 It should verify.
