Can't send emails but can receive on Mac

Cannot send out emails on Mac but can receive. Using smtp.comcast.net  Have tried port 587 and 465 with SSL on. I get a message that senders address is rejected by server smtp.comcast.net   

I can send and receive on Iphone with settings port 587 with SSL on, but not on main computer. Worked fine until setting up I Phone. I use secureserver to receive.

When started over with a new account and tried to send email asked for password but kept saying password was incorrect and would not accept.

Are you able to sign into Xfinity Connect (web version) with the same username and the password?
