Outlook:  I'm unable to email out of Filemaker Pro 16, 15 or 14 thru an Outlook SMTP server with the following settings given to me by Microsoft Help.  I get Error 1506, "Email message(s) could not be sent successfully." 

 

SMTP Server: "smtp-mail.outlook.com"

Port: 587

Use TLS

Authentication Type: Plain Password

User Name: "XXXXX@outlook.com"

Password: "XXXXXXXXX"

 

 

Yahoo gave me the same error, Error 1506, with the following recommended settings:

 

SMTP Server: "smtp.mail.yahoo.com"

Port: 465

Use SSL

Authentication Type: Plain Password

User Name: "XXXXXX@yahoo.com"

Password: "XXXXXXXX"

I also selected the less secure connection.

 

 

Google:  I was able to successfully email using Google with these settings:

 

SMTP Server: "smtp.gmail.com"

Port: 587

Use TLS

Authentication Type: Plain Password

User Name:  "XXXXXXX@gmail.com"

Password: "XXXXXXXX"

 

I need to be able to email using all three (Outlook, Yahoo & Google) for testing.  Can anyone explain why the recommended settings shown above do not work for Outlook or Yahoo?  Your help would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you.
