Step 8 -
Close the Outlook program completely, then test the email by sending an email from / to your email address (e.g. from john@yourdomain.net.au to john@yourdomain.net.au). If a pop up box comes up and asks for your password, put it in then. We would also recommend restarting the computer to ensure that the old settings are no longer being used.
