IMPORTANT
Usually, the port used for the Outgoing Mail Server/SMTP Service is 25. However, there might be a situation where your ISP might be blocking the use of port 25 for SMTP service. Many ISPs block port 25 in order to minimize the amount of spam sent using their network. If you are facing issues sending mails using the default port 25, you can confirm with your ISP whether port 25 is indeed blocked by them.
To circumvent this, you can use an alternate port 587 for sending mails if port 25 is blocked. Here’s how:a) In Outlook Express, on the Tools menu, click Accounts
b) Select the email account you wish to modify and click Properties
c) Under the Advanced tab, replace the default port number 25 with the alternate port number 587 in the field provided for Outgoing mail (SMTP)
d) Click OK and then Close to save the changes ANNOUNCEMENT

SSL/TLS option has been enabled on our servers. The SSL/TLS option will run on the default ports. That means, you do not need to change the port numbers for the SSL/TLS option to work.

Steps to configure TLS/SSL in Outlook Express
a) Go to Outlook Express -> Tools -> Account
b) Click on Mail tab -> highlight your email account -> Properties
c) Click on “Advance” tab, Server Port No. for Outgoing Mail SMTP change to 25/587
d) Server Port No. for Incoming Mail POP3 is 995 and IMAP at 993
e) Check both the “This server require a secure connection (SSL)”
f) Click OK and Close the “Account” Window.

Your setup is complete. When you click on the Send/Receive button, your email will be downloaded by Outlook Express.
