7. Select the Advanced tab.
Under Incoming Server (POP3), the port number should be set to 110.
Under Outgoing Server (SMTP), the port number should be set to 25 or 26.
Port numbers must be
- POP3: 110
- IMAP: 143
- SMTP: 25 or 26
If you have troubles sending emails via port 25, try 26 instead.
Note: 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.
