The messages while doing a "Test Account" in Outlook account Log onto incoming mail server (POP3): The connection to the server was interrupted. If this problem continues, contact your server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP). Send test e-mail message: The connection to the server was interrupted. If this problem continues, contact your server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP). The account is on 1&1 - I went there first, they said its not their problem but once the authentication stuff is removed from the "More settings" tab [within the advanced section] there is no problem. [uncheck the "this server requires encrypted connection" and change "use the following type of encrypted connection" from TLS to nine] This has been working for MANY years! :>) It worked this morning.
Hi Mike, Not sure I understand what the problem is? You say the test message functionality fails but then go on to say everything works as expected when you disable SSL/TLS Are you trying to get things working with SSL/TLS enabled?
