Good luck with that. I had the same issue. After talking with Comcast support, they told me that the internet provider in France would have to look at it. right! So, I set up a Gmail account for emailing to France and haven't had any issues since.

I've  removed the block from the IP.  It was caused by a high volume of spam from late last month.  The block can happen again if they spam heavily, but otherwise you should be all set.

Re: Blocked mail from overseas (France)

COMCAST has been denying traffic from Wannadoo and Orange in France for a long time. They claim excessive spam. Other ISP (G-mail, Surewest, AT&T) will transmit same traffic. Give it up and go an alternate route.
