No. The problem is that the iOS Outlook App requires SMTP authorization to be entered during account setup or the account will not be created in the app. I have been around and around with the MS OL app support people, explaining that my ISP's SMTP requires no authorization at all, but they will not remove the app's requirement to have SMTP authorization details. What's maddening is that OL desktop does have the possibility to untick the requirement to have authorization, just not the mobile version.

With only so much head butting, I gave up with them in the end and just stick to Apple's woeful iOS Mail.
