Hi,

(Nice seeing your reply, shake hands, virtual though.)

Have you noticed that in icedove --> Edit --> Account Settings

At the bottom of the left column, there is one item calls: Outgoing
Server (SMTP),
click it, there is an option to choose the default outgoing server settings.
I chose google one as default.

I changed different port, it still shows me:
Sending of message failed.
The message could not be sent because the connection to SMTP server
pod51003.outlook.com timed out. Try again or contact your network
administrator.

but no problem in receiving email.

Yes, I followed exactly with minor tweak in port.

Seems I do "correctly" in pop3 settings, so server no problem, only port left.
