Hello everyone!,

Would like to ask help I cannot set up my Outlook account on my Outlook app in my Mac 10.6.8. I tried inputting my email on the "Exchange" on the outlook app, but its asking for a "server". I tried setting it up on other emails, you know set up an imap/smpt it work, but the problem is I cannot send an email, it says cannot send email from an unknown sender something like that. :confused:

I don't have an older mac to verify, but try using eas.outlook.com as the server name for Exchange.

On the SMTP problem, you need to enable an option to use the incoming password for outgoing mail. This should be in accounts > open the account and click Advanced.
