I have a new computer and I ́m trying to set up my Homestead email account in Outlook 2013 but for some reason when I ́m done with the set up and test it to see if it works the outgoing mail does not work. The incoming mail seems to be just fine but not the smtp. 

I have had my Homestead account for almost five years now and during that time I ́ve never had any problems setting up my email using Outlook or setting it up in my other devices so I don ́t understand what I ́m doing wrong this time. 

So just in case I tried to use the step-by-step instructions given here: https://community.homestead.com/homestead/topics/how_do_i_set_up_pop3_email_in_outlook_2013 and I also used the instructions for the IMAP set up but still no luck. I get an error that says: 421 cannot connect.

Can I get some help please?

Thanks!

Hello,

We were experiencing an issue not connecting to the smtp servers. Is the issue still happening?
