This guide is intended to help you set up and configure an email account with Outlook 2010. All you have to do is follow the steps step by step.
In our example, we configure the e-mail account in POP (with and without SSL). However, it is quite possible to configure email settings differently by using the parameters indicated in this guide.

Then click on New….
You now have the choice between manual or automatic configuration for any email. All these configurations can be used only with email clients.
STEP 1 CHOICE OF CONFIGURATION
Select the manual option to configure the mail server settings manually and additional server types. Then click the Next button.

STEP 3 MAIL SETTINGS
On this page you must enter the following information:
- Name: enter here the name you wish to appear with your correspondents;

STEP 4 GENERAL

You can enter the reference of the account you want. By default, this is the email address. Here, we have replaced it with OVH Support.
This reference will be displayed in the management of e-mail accounts in Outlook.
- Then click on the Outgoing Server tab.
STEP 5 OUTGOING SERVER & ADVANCED OPTIONS
In the Outgoing server tab, check the box “My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication” then check to Use the same settings as my incoming mail server.
You must use port 587 in SMTP and check the authentication box for the connection of the outgoing server.
This is the authenticated outgoing port for all ISPs (Internet Service Providers).
Authentication for the outgoing server is an essential setting so that the e-mail transmission can work on our SMTP servers.
If authentication is not enabled, an Open SMTP incident ticket can be opened informing you that “POP before SMTP” authentication is not supported. You must activate the authentication of the outgoing server in order to be able to send emails.
In the Advanced options tab, complete these parameters:
Incoming server (POP3): must be 110.
This server requires an encrypted connection (SSL) must be unchecked.
Outgoing server (SMTP): must be 587.
Use the following type of encrypted connection must be set to None
Click OK to continue.
At this level, you can also define whether the emails should be deleted from the mail server, as well as the delay before deletion. Similar to OVH, Also check Grapevine email settings for outlook, android, and iPhone.

The Outlook application then searches for the items in your domain that it needs in order to complete the automatic configuration.
If all goes well, the message opposite should appear.
Do you plan to add several e-mail addresses linked to the concerned domain? Then check Don’t ask me again about this website.
This will prevent you from checking this box each time you add an e-mail account.
Then click on Authorize.
If you do not have the message opposite, remember to check that your password is correct using Webmail (Why is it beneficial to use desktop client over webmail).
If your password is indeed correct, check that your DNS zone has the following 3 lines:

_imaps._tcp.your SRV domain 0 0 993 SSL0.OVH.NET
