  5. If not already selected, we select Use same settings as my incoming mail server.

  6. Under the Advanced tab:

    In the Incoming Server area, choose SSL for the type of encrypted connection, and change the port number to 993.
    In the Outgoing Server area, choose TLS for the type of encrypted connection, and change the port number to 465.
