Hi I have a huge Problem using and configuring PRTG. I want that the Server sends messages via SMTP. My E-Mail Account is run on Outlook.com. But i have only the following Informations over the Server, and I dont know how to configure the server, because all i tried doesnt help :

Server: smtp.live.com Port: 587 SMTP TLS/SSL encryption required: yes and of course my login data and passwort.

But i tried everythink to configure the server, but when i click on "testing" at the menu notification, nothing happens.

What can/must i do to start working with PRTG again?

email prtg smtp
