As per my title, if anyone has windows 10 mail client fetching and sending Orcon email can you please share your settings.  I have tried many variations of settings, both pop3 & imap but can only receive email, not send.

I did some playing around as was having the same issues with my domain emails (Not Via Orcon) on the Windows 10 App.

It appears when your setting up the account it uses the incoming server username field as the email address, so when you go to send emails it fails as the sending address is invalid. Doesn't appear to be any way to set the email address specifically in the app so ended up just downloading Windows Live Mail and using that. 

Any comments made are my personal views and does not represent those of my employer
