Here are a few additional tips that might be helpful:

:: Try starting fresh. Often it helps to delete the non-working email account entirely, because it might contain some input errors. Starting fresh can often solve the problem.

:: If searching online for your provider's settings, try a web search for: MyProvider server and port settings. (Replace "MyProvider" with your email provider's name.)

:: Type your password v-e-r-y s-l-o-w-l-y. The most common source of difficulty is password typing error. Typing very slowly and deliberately, checking as you go, often solves the problem.
