How to set pop3 and smtp server port addresses for win 10 mail app?

I'm trying to try the Windows 10 mail app with my pop3 mail account but it requires special port numbers. In outlook this is no problem but in the mail app I can't see any way to do this. I need the pop3 address to be 110 and the smtp address to be 587. Is there any way to change them?

I was looking through this conversations because I faced a similar problem.

Our universities server asked for TLS as well, and I was trying around with all the different settings.

This was asked by the university to make it work.

After trying around all the different advices, I deleted the account once again and set it up like that.

Now it is working fine.

Hope somebody else is as successful as me.
