Hello I'm setting up email notification

  7. Edit SMTP Server:    smtp-mail.outlook.com

within Diversion and I'm getting the message below:

1. Send testmail
 2. Send testmail, verbose output

 Enter your selection [1-2 e=Exit] 1

  % Total    % Received % Xferd  Average Speed   Time    Time     Time  Current

curl: (7) Couldn't connect to server

 sending testmail failed

 Note the curl: error above and check your settings

 Press Enter to return to menu

Good thing is I'm still getting the email. Is there another smtp server I should try or just simply ignore the message?

Use option 2 with verbose output to see more details why curl it could not find the server. Check your server port, it should be 587 for outlook.com if I remember correctly.
