Hello,

If you are connecting to Outlook try connecting using the settings listed here. https://community.homestead.com/homestead/topics/email-client-settings

OK so I figured it out.  They client(homestead) upgraded the password restrictions and my old password did not meet criteria.  Changed that and used auto connect and I am now connected.  Thanks
