Start by configuring Outlook to check E-mail services hosted by FastWebEngine - Let's begin:

If you follow this tutorial and are unable to send E-mail, you may have to configure Outlook to send E-mail using Port 587. For more information click on the following link to review this tutorial:
While some ISPs will allow you to configure Outlook to use Port 25 for sending email, many may restrict this port setting. If you have configured Outlook to use Port 587 and are still unable to send E-mail, you may have to use your Internet Service Provider's Outgoing E-mail Server ("SMTP" or Outgoing Server Setting in "Step 4" above). Please contact your Internet Service Provider to learn about their recommended outgoing configuration settings in order to send E-mail.
