    Email office 365

    alex

      Dear FM experts,

      I am trying to send an email from FM via an office 365 account.

       

      In the user Options I am using the following SMTP server setting:

      Server information

      Outgoing SMTP server : smtp.office365.com

      Port : 993

      Connection encryption : TLS

      Authentication : Plain password

      User Name : account name

      User ID : password

       

      It seems that it is not working. Any advice is appreciated

          STMP port for O365 is 587

           

          Regards, Conor.

              Try switching to SSL and/or using port 994 for sending not 993 (that is like port 995 for POP accounts and for receiving only).

                    Can you get me a test account for that server so I can play with it, Alex? I have done secure mail service aside from FileMaker Pro for about 15 years as a commercial service. It would probably get you a solution quicker. My email is ron@ronsmithmd.com so you can send me the information securely.
