Outllok 2010

I have 2 customer that are both using Windows 10 and Outlook 2010. The first one had both of these products and he can not get his emails address and Password to take. The second customer just installed outlook 2010 onto a new Win 10 device and is having the same issue. ID and Passwords both work in webmail. Does anyone have any ideas as to why this would not work?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The only possible reason for this is a mis-configuration. Find out if it's a POP / IMAP / Exchange account that's being configured and provide them with personalised step by step instructions, including screenshots that have the relevant domains, pop and smtp servers and ports in the screenshots and all will be well.

In all the times I've dealt with issues just like this, I've yet to identify one that was an Outlook related problem.

Hope that's helpful.

What do you mean his email and password won't take?

Are they on a domain or connecting to an outside host? It's probably something to do with the configuration either not pointing to the correct exchange server or something in the authentication.

It could very much depend on who is providing the email service.

For example, if they were using Gmail, then they would need to 'allow less secure devices' to connect:


However, that would be completely irrelevant to a different email provider.
