I'm having trouble sending emails on Outlook?
The most common issue when trying to send emails on Outlook is that the outgoing server authentication is not in use. To turn this on go into the account settings and select More Settings or Advanced Settings and on that box their will be a tab named Outgoing Server and ensure the setting "My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication" is checked and that the option to use the same settings as the incoming server is selected.

Ensure that you are using password as the type of authentication

Why can't I send or receive my emails?
If you can't send or receive emails, check if you can view web pages. If you can't this means that their is a problem with your Internet connection and you will need to speak to your Internet Service Provider.

My email account won't work on my phone, but I know I've set it up correctly?
This can occur when you are using the Internet connection on your phone rather than wifi. This problem is caused when you phone provider (Orange, o2, Vodafone, 3, etc.) don't allow you to use your own email server. The reason they do this is to protect against spam emails.
In order to fix this you will need to call your phone provider and ask them for their email server details, they will be able to support you on changing your settings so that they work with their network.
