SMTP for POP3 not working on Outlook 2016 - O365

Michael Serrano 21 Reputation points

I recently purchased Action Pack and set up the O365 application. Online everything works fine for Outlook. On Outlook desktop 2016, when setting up POP3 and testing the connection, I can receive but cannot send. It is giving me an authentication error for SMTP.

The password and settings are correct, but I still can't send. Any ideas?

    Thank you @Andy David - MVP this was helpful. Basically, I had to turn off SMTP Auth and turn it back on for it to work correctly. Very odd that it didn't configure correctly during set up.

    @Jade Liang-MSFT Thanks.

    The funny thing is that it stopped working again and I can't send from O365 either. When I send on O365 I get a bounce back that my email was blocked. It happens to anyone I send to. Here's a sample message:

    Delivery has failed to these recipients or groups:

    michael.serrano@axis .com
    Your message wasn't delivered because the recipient's email provider rejected it.

    I put in a ticket with Microsoft.
