  3. ​You will need to click on ​​Account Settings,​​ then again on the ​​Account Settings​​ in the drop-down. ​

  5. ​You have a choice here. ​
    ​If this is a new POP account then select ​​New​​. You will see a couple of screens not pictured here. You will want to setup an email account and select POP ​

These settings will allow a connection to outlook. Are you receiving this error while in the process of setting this up or after all settings are entered?
