My PO3 account in MAC (Outlook 2016) is getting the following error
"The connection to the server was failed or dropped - error 3253 could not retrieve mail" and tried changing the SMTP port to 587 which was 25 earlier but no luck.

MAC OS - High Sierra 10.3 and outlook 15.39

Any resolution method to fix this

You need to change the incoming port to 110 to receive emails. Port 25 is for sending emails.
