Note - Make sure, you're using correct incoming and outgoing mail server while configuring an email account.

Solution :-

On Outgoing Mail Servers tab, select the 'My server requires authentication box', use the default option of 'Use same settings as my incoming server' .
 
Click the Advanced tab, and under Server Port Numbers , enter the following information:

· In the Incoming mail (POP3) box, type 995.
· In the Outgoing mail (SMTP) box, type 465.
· Under both Outgoing mail (SMTP) and Incoming mail (POP3), select the ‘requires secure connection (SSL) ’ check box.
