    Win 10 email, can I use a different Incoming and Outgoing server?

    Hi All,
    Can the Windows 10 email app be configured like Outlook, using a different Incoming and Outgoing mail server?
    I've had this setup on Outlook on several other computers but haven't found a way to do it on Win 10, primarily because it asks for your email address then assumes that is your username.
    This works fine for my outgoing mail server but not the incoming server.

    Yes, I am a user with 6 Accounts on the Mail App.
    Click on Accounts > in right pane > + Add Account >
    There are currently 7 choices there.

    Depends on your type of Email Account, that you will have to know/suss yourself.
    For one of mine you select either "Other account POP, IMAP" or "Advanced setup" (scroll down). The latter gives you the most options, one of which is Outgoing & Incoming servers which you will have to find out from your Email provider.

    The reference given misses steps out.

    Win 10 email, can I use a different Incoming and Outgoing server?-windows-10-mail-app-step-4.jpg
    The issue I'm having is the first entry "User name" asking for the email address.
    My incoming mail server is looking for part of that name.
    Instead of -> myname@mymailserver, It is looking for myname as the user name.
    The outgoing server is fine with the full email address.
    Is there a way to change the incoming user name?
