Outlook.com email notifications?

Post by wrecclesham » Sat Aug 08, 2020 11:29 pm

Is it possible to send email notifications using an Outlook.com account?

I've created an app password and am using that, so that my 2FA doesn't cause any problems.

Here are the settings I'm trying right now, with no success:

SMTP server:

(my email minus the "@outlook.com" part)


Use encrypted connection (SSL)

Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?

It looks like outlook.com requires STARTTLS as encryption method:

This is currently not supported in Yawcam :(
