I don't recall the exact location of the option during initial accounts setup.
Assuming you have already set up the account and SMTP server, you have to edit the SMTP server settings. They can be found at Mail > Preferences > Accounts > [accountname] > Account Information tab > Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) > Edit SMTP Server List... > [servername] > Advanced tab > Authentication > Password
Then fill in the User Name and Password text boxes that will appear.
Let us know how that works for you.
Also, did you eventually find the Connection Doctor?

I know that this is an older post but, in the case that anyone still has an issue, this is resolvable with Outlook.
In the SMTP server settings, you have to:
Override default port and then type 587 in the port number next to the outgoing server name
Use SSL to connect
Then under more settings, you have to select More Options.
In that window, you will change the dropdown from None to User Name and Passwor and then, input your actual email address (email@example.com).
That should fix you up.

Thanks a lot matneyc!!!
It finally solved my problem!!
But.... I have just realized that the aliases doesn't work neither to send or receive emails...
Do you have any idea how to fix it?

Sorry, I guess I was not clear...
I have a main icloud account plus two aliases icloud on this same account.
When I setup the main account at Mail software this automaticaly shows the other two aliases as an option to send on the From field and I can receive any email from the them at the Mail.
But when I setup the main icloud account at Microsoft Outlook it only shows to send and receive only the emails from the main icloud account.
