    Outlook keeps changing Account Settings


    I have Office 365. Outlook has twice in the last couple months changed the Account settings and specifically the servers thus causing unknown messages to be hung up and repeatedly to try and send.

    Its changing on its own, not sure how that is happening. When I manually try to correct it, it comes up with an error and can't change. I've even deleted the account and tried to create a new one with the correct servers and it comes back with an error. The only way I've been able to correct it is to use a Macrium full disc image and restore to an earlier time where it was OK. That obviously has or can have repercussions on other things including installed/uninstalled apps, user data, etc.

    I also use Mailwasher Pro and the account is not changing in that, just Outlook.

    I've used Outlook or Outlook Express for years but I'm ready to dump it.

    :)

    Outlook 365 - adding new account problem


    Hi steveatootac. Welcome to the TenForums @steveatootac

    Don't think I would call this a repair but more an edit.

    Click on File, upper left, account settings, account setting. A window should open with your accounts listed. Double click on the account you want to edit, then more settings lower right. The is a tab Outgoing Servers

    These are the steps in Outlook 2013 and I don't think much has change to Outlook 2016.
