    Outlook 2016 on W7 Works CORRECTLY (avoid auto setup) W10 BREAKS

    Hi there

    Just loaded a W7 VM with Outlook 2016 installed on it

    setting up a new account works up THE WAY IT'S SUPPOSED TO. I.e you can enter all the bits manually. Note this server is NOT an EXCHANGE server.

    What hoses up W10 is that for my incoming / outgoing mail servers the name is of the form mail.xxxx.is while the user name is on a totally different hosted server like anyname@xn-server-name-a3b3a.is

    W10 -- can't connect to account because the auto config has WRONG values in it so can't create. Why can't the wretched software say - can't auto create so go ahead manually.

    W7 no problems.

    I might try an update of this W7 VM to W10 (the free update still works BTW) to see if the email account is retained.

    BTW a great use for VM's when testing this type of event / problem !!!!

    Outlook is kind of stupid, but i could setup all my accounts.

    Hotmail (Exchange)
    Gmail (IMAP with 2-factor authentication)
    Other (IMAP on some weird server with even more weird username that does not match e-mail at all)
