I have two email accouts setup in my Outlook, I use "Account A" for incoming and outgoing emails. I use "Account B" for only incoming emails, this email did have outgoing but no longer works.

I get an error every time my email does a send and receive, telling me that the connection timed out. Please Outlook tell me somthing I dont know lol.

How would I setup an email account for just incoming emails, you have to input something into the sntp address section.

Thanks for any help, MD

Hello mrd156,

In the account B settings, make sure it is not included in the Send/Receive group.

Click on the Send/Receive button on Mail Setup General tab. Make sure that account B  is NOT included in the Group to send.

Hope this helps!
