Configure incoming e-mail settings missing

So busy setting up new SharePoint 2016 environment and needed to configure the incoming e-mail settings but I can only see the link in Central Admin for the outgoing e-mails.

Seems there are some strange security issues with Central Administration which prevents some links from displaying (even if you login as the Farm administrator.


Open Internet Explorer as Administrator (that’s it)

Or, use Central Administration via the Start menu on the SharePoint server (the shortcut forces the elevated privileges)
