Re: POP3 Server

  1. enter your Account name or Email user name (your Comcast user ID, the part before "@comcast.net" in your email address)
  2. enter your Password
  3. check "Remember password"

When you set the username make sure it the part without comcast.net

make sure you have the correct password.

You posted your operating system and your browser.  I need to know what you use for email?  Which email program?

 

Examples of email clients you may use could be:  Windows Mail, Windows Live Mail, Thunderbird, Gmail.

Your error message shows that you still did not enable SSL on for POP3.

 

Try again.
