    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
