I have Authentication enabled on my outgoing smtp server set to "Normal password". When i send a email it keeps asking for the password and i enter the password but it does not accept. How could i fix this? I deleted the outgoing smtp connection and setup again but have the same issue.

From your description, it seems to be an incorrect password. If not, it may be that your account requires a special app password (AOL and GMAIL are examples of email providers who require this additional security).
