B. After that click the Advanced tab  and enter the ports for incoming and outgoing server. For incoming normally 110 port is used and for outgoing 25 port is used. But most of the ISP’s and Hosting provider don’t allow the default ports so either you would have to ask your ISP or hosting provider to know about these entries. After that click the Okay button.

If you are already a client of creativeON then I recommend you to use incoming port 110 and for outgoing port use 587.
