Outlook 2016 and Optusnet webmail


I am trying to set up Outlook for my webmail as part of Office 365. I am able to receive email but not send it. the message 'Connection to the server failed or was dropped' is the system response. i am seeking the SMTP details, including port numbers and SSL and encryption details.


Can anyone help me please?


Thank you
