How to configure Office365 SMTP server in Backup4all
If you want to use Office365 as SMTP server (we also recommend GMail SMTP server), please follow the steps bellow to configure it correctly in Backup4all.
Go to File->Options->Email

On "Server name or IP" enter smtp.office365.com
For "Port" number enter 587
From the "Connection encryption" dropdown list, select TLS

In the "Authentication" section, select Server requires authentication and enter your outlook email address and password.
Press "Send test email" button, enter your email and press OK. You should get a successful message.
If for some reason you get an error message, please look at the last part of the message, there should be some indications about the problem. Here are few possible messages:
Incorrect email and password
In such a case, please re-enter the complete email address and the correct password.
An error occurred while sending mail. The mail server responded: 5.3.4 554 5.2.0 STOREDRV.Submission.Exception:OutboundSpamException; Failed to process message due to a permanent exception with message WASCL UserAction verdict is not None. Actual verdict is HipNotify, ShowTierUpgrade. OutboundSpamException: WASCL UserAction v. Please check the message and try again.
In this case, you need to first confirm your office365 email account. To do that, just login to https://outlook.live.com with your email and password. A phone number for confirmation will be required.
After the account is confirmed, you can try again to send a notification test email from Backup4all.
