Outgoing mail Outlook/ IMAP through OPTUS

Alloig

 I use Outlook for mail and OPTUS as a mail server. 

I am receiving mail but can't send mail   

Can anyone tell me the "advanced" setting for IMAP in Outlook Mail for outgoing mail

 Hi, Great response. As you can tell I am new to the "Forum".  Appreciate the quick response

Dan C's response appears to be for the IPhone and I have both IPhone & IPad as well as a PC with Outlook. 

Are these settings the same across the three platforms?

Has anyone been able to connect for IMAP outgoing mail to any port other than 25? I'm using the outlook client within my Office 365 subscription so should be the latest version.

I have tried port 465 with SSL or Auto selected but no success.

I'm using Express VPN and that is blocking port 25 (so annoying!) and I think that Nord VPN does the same as the VPN providers consider port 25 to be insecure. So, I'm trying to connect using any port other than 25 to get around the problem.
