FileMaker 15 can work only with the 64bits version of Outlook... , maybe eMclient is a 32bits version ?

If you have 32bit version of FM installed then you use 32bit email client. If you have 64bit FM installed then you use 64bit client. FMP15 for Windows comes in 32bit and 64bit version. Mac version only comes in 64bit version but can be forced to run in 32bit mode.
Sorry if I misunderstood your post, but did you try to do the SMTP send in FMP's email settings instead of using the Client?
OTOH, Outlook is so problematic, most of my clients just avoid it.

one uses a standard gmail account, the other one uses a domain hosted at GoDaddy (large US provider).
both result in an "SSL error" error message.
however, i changed to trying the TLS option on port 587 - then it suddenly worked.
for reference by others - these settings i used:
fmpdude - our posts crossed. thanks for your input.
I would suggest testing with an App Password. It not hard to setup.
