Hi there

This really is a show stopper -- Outlook 2016 after latest update - I can't enter manual settings to create new email accounts -- the whole thing has been "Dummified" to use dropdowns,

This might be OK for people who fit standard basic needs such as just using an email with gmail or from an ISP server - but if you've got your own domain and email server It's no good.

Here's what I get now instead of the sensible create new account with the old version.

Click image for larger version.

I need slightly different options -- is there any way to get the old screen back -- e.g a hidden advanced settings / more settings

The above settings or any of the dropdowns don't connect -- I just get ---OOPS something went wrong -- Retry ??

What a dogs dinner -- Outlook was working fine until they try and dumb down stuff then you are really hosed up.

The server works fine if I send an email from logging on to the domain so it's definitely OUTLOOK.

Added -- found the answer - but it's a REDICULOUS situation -- create the account even if it doesn't connect -- then go into CHANGE account and then you (still but for how long) get the settings back again which you can change

working now.

Not getting a good feeling about were Windows is going -- I really don't like all this 1-click install stuff -- fine if people want to use it but there should be an Advance option for people who need more than the basic settings.
