Can't send Outgoing comcast email on iPhone 6 iOS10

I have had this problem since I had an iPhone 3. I cannot send outgoing emails from my iPhone with Comcast. I have chnaged the port several times currently tried 465 for the smtp server. My password and user name matches up with my account. It verifies but when I send an email it says password and username don't match cannot send mail.

In iOS, you need to set the password in two places------for the incoming server, and then again for the outgoing smtp server. Did you do that? If not, to change it for the smtp server;


go to "Settings" on the home screen, then scroll down to" Mail, Contacts, Calendars", click on the account, and then on the next screen tap the "account" again. Scroll down to "SMTP" and tap that. Then tap "smtp.comcast.net". On the next screen you will see the password. Change it and then tap "Done" in the upper right hand corner of the screen.

Well mine is a doddering 4s model, and I can't update it to 10.  So someone else with iOS 10 will hopefully jump in here.

I also am experiencing the same problem with my phone since updating to IOS 10. I cannot send emails at all and have tried putting my password in many times. Any help would be appreciated.m!
