Description: an informal name that you will decide to identify the server
Server Name: the actual SMTP server’s specification. You can find it either consulting the web page of your provider, or searching for it on our list of server POP and SMTP.
Port: usually SMTP works with port 25, but as the screenshot shows it can work also with 587. For further information, check out our article about SMTP ports.
Connection security: in itself, SMTP email transfer doesn’t provide an encryption. So if you want to make your connection more secure, it’s a good choice to use a STARTTLS or SSL/TLS extension, that employ a separate port for encrypted communication.
Authentication method: there’s a certain number of methods (passwords, CRAM-MD5, KERBEROS etc.).
User Name: your email address.
