Running gmail through Outlook 2016, all mail comes in fine.

Running gmail through Outlook...

Running gmail through Outlook 2016, all mail comes in fine. However, I cannot send any mail. In account settings, the "Test Messages" always work, but no other emails can be sent after that.

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been an issue?

It has never worked on this laptop. A year (embarrased)... Window 10.

Technician's Assistant: How do you access your email most often? On a phone or tablet, or through a web browser?

On a phone. I can create a message on the laptop save as a draft and send from my phone

Technician's Assistant: What troubleshooting have you tried?

Different outgoing ports and encryption. Also called WOW (ISP) - they suggested uninstall Outlook and re-install

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the email expert to know before I connect you?

Guess not - just is strange all test messages from account settings go through fine

Sorry to hear you're having trouble with your email.

What's the error message you get when you try to send?

Thank you

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
no

The advice you were given sounds correct according to the error message but may be a little complex if you're not too tech savvy.

Creating the new profile is simple but making sure you don't lose any of your emails might be tricky.

Do you have any important emails in that PST file and is it setup as POP or IMAP?

Ask Your Own Email Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
IMAP and yes - I you save some emails
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
would

May I connect with you remotely to troubleshoot the issue directly?

Ask Your Own Email Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
I think probably not. DO you think uninstall and reinstall Outlook?
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Should I try to delete the account in Outlook and re-create first?

That's fine, it's completely optional.

Locate your PST file first and copy it to a safe location and then delete the profile (not outlook) from the control panel whilst Outlook is closed

If the price is an issue I can set the % lower for you (I can't see the actual amount but I can set the percentage lower)

I am usually pretty good with the tech stuff - If I am careful and follow the instructions. Any clue why all the "Test Messages" go through fine?

Do you have any emails in the Outbox?
