 This issue could be because of your internet connection being slow or your mail server not responding to the requests you are making. The server could be processing a lot of mails or experiencing load problems and not recognising your request that's why it will time out. Check internet connection if it is working fine and if it is contact your server admin to check if the server load if good and if there are no mails stuck in the queue.

check here:

Also make sure the domain is paid for and not in redemption.


Alternatively just retart both outlook and router and see if that helps.

I face issues with Outlook quite often. Don't know why but this application just doesn't like me. Thankfully I managed to add a cool signature which I created beforehand on Mysignature and also I set up sorting rules which help me a lot with analyzing of incoming emails.
