    I had problems with Outlook 2016 sending e-mail. Following this kb, I set Outgoing SMTP to port 587, but still kept getting an error saying could not connect to SMTP server. I have Comcast internet in Seattle, and in some cases they block port 25. Comcast support site says that 587 is an alternate port, but not for me. The workaround I received from InterServer support was this: on the Advanced tab, set the SMTP Port to 465, Use the following type of encrypted connection: SSL, and the SMTP hostname is plesk-mail2.interserver.net

      I have been having the same problem. Did you find a way to fix it? If you did, could you tell me please?Thanx beforehand man.

      • Hello Dan and Diego.

        Greetings from InterServer Support.

        I would check what MX records your domain names resolves to. To check same please run following command in your Windows command prompt nslookup -q=mx YOURDOMAIN.COM

        As long as the domain is pointed to our servers and not to any third-party DNS such as other hosting provider’s DNS or Cloudflare etc – MX records lookup should show a result either mail.YOURDOMAN.COM or YOURDOMAIN.COM . Please use same result as your email client’s incoming and outgoing mail servers and it should be able to communicate with our server as long as you have right password.

        Please feel free to open a live chat support session from our website and we will be more than happy to assist you.

        Have a great day.
