Email won't send - Windows 8

My new Dell computer came with Windows 8 installed. I have no problem using my hotmail and gmail email accounts but when I recently tried to add an IMAP account it will only receive email, not send. This account works perfectly from other devices such as phone and ipad. I think it must be a problem with the outgoing server settings but I have tried every option possible, including changing the port from 25 to 587. Can anyone suggest a solution?
