Here is a basic Outlook setup, but you really need the exact settings from the webpage.

Name
Email Address
Incoming Mail: pop.webpage.com
Outgoing Mail: smtp.webpage.com
User name and password
Outgoing Server Authentication
In Port 993/SSL
Out Port 587/TLS
Leave a copy on server or no.

You need to find the outgoing and incoming servers available to your client but these folks have some generic instructions for Outlook 6.0 which apply also to Outlook. You will notice that the incoming and outgoing servers vary:

    Click the "Add e-mail account" link found on the left sidebar.
    Enter the requested information
        Enter your E-mail address.
        Enter your Password (password info found in your website admin's email accounts area).
        Enter your Display Name.
        Check the option for "Manually configure settings for email account".
    Click next.
    Enter the requested information (detailed information to enter into the fields can be found via your website admin's email accounts area).
        Set the "My incoming mailserver is a" option to POP3.
        Set the Incoming server. This is your POP server.
        Leave the incoming port set to 110.
        Do not check the "This server requires a secure connection (SSL).
        Set "Log on using" to "Clear text authentication".
        Set the Login ID to your account name. Please note that you must enter your full email address.
        Set the Outgoing server. This is your SMTP server.
        Leave the outgoing port set to 25.
        Do not check the "This server requires a secure connection (SSL).
        Do not check the "My outgoing server requires authentication".
    Click next.
    Click finish.

Please note that if you get an error when trying to send/receive, try changing your SMTP port to 5050 and your POP port to 5051.

Hello frankbustos,

SMTP stands for Simple Mail Transfer Protocol. We use SMTP when we have to deliver our emails from an email client, such as Microsoft Outlook Express to an email server. It is also used to deliver email from one email server to another.

POP3 stands for Post Office Protocol. It is the most recent version of a standard protocol for receiving e-mail. It works on the principle of ‘store-and-forward’ service. It is designed to delete mail from the server after downloading it. It requires the user name & password to fetch all the emails from servers.
you can refer to the following article related to the above queries:

http://msoutlookworld.blogspot.com/2016/06/pop-to-imap-21st-century-transformation.html

the complete concept of POP, IMAP and SMTP is expained in it.

Thanks & Regards
Edwin Hoffer
