Outlook - Showing Port Settings on Existing Account

I have a team where there are always new accounts or employees are moving their email from one computer to another. I can't click on my account, change and view the port and security settings like I used to. Does anyone know where they went? Why Outlook doesn't show this anymore?

What kind of account are you trying to set up? Most of the usual account types like Microsoft, gmail etc is configured automatically for you by entering username and password! If you choose advanced settings you can pick manual settings! If you set up an account this way they should be visible

It's our own domain and therefore not able to auto discover. I want to view my settings so I can compare mine to theirs. When I pick manual settings, it goes fine but I always have to remember the incoming/outgoing server, checking the box for use same settings as incoming, and setting the ports.

Depending on solution , but auto discover can probably be configured in your dns as well! I’ll look into it about the settings but for now just do a print screen :)

What kind of solution are you running?
Are you an administrator ?

We're using Big Commerce. (yes)

But wouldn't that be on our domain registrar to edit the DNS?

Looks like their own mail hosting is just pop! On new customers they no longer offer mail hosting but points to third-party solutions (like office365 :). )
So you have to live with this for now!
I think I found the settings on their support page though: see attached file

Yes - aware of all that but Big Commerce is broken, when you click on the settings, the page dims and no pop ups appear despite they're not blocked (on any browser). Oh well.
