Hello,

 

The Password rejection can confuse people since it's a catch all meaning...

 

This Password, Username, Authentication method... is not recognized on this Port to this Server, or a server end problem.

 

If using a browser to login via WebMail works it's not Name or Password, but one of the other ones.

 

The receiving email ports are:

 

IMAP is port 143

IMAP-SSL is port 993

POP is port 110

POP-SSL is port 995

Outgoing ports are...

SMTP and SMTP-SSL is on ports 25, 587 and 465. Port 587 has to be SSL, and port 465 is enforced TLS-wrapped and is generally used by Outlook users.
