Cannot connect to smtp:comcast.net

Regular Contributor

Cannot connect to smtp:comcast.net

All of a sudden today (3/1/18) I cannot send email using my Comcast account (using Apple mail)

The message I get is:

Cannot send message using the server smtp:comcast.net/my user name

The connection to the server “smtp.comcast.net” on port 587 timed out.

 

Anyone else? All my other email accounts (gmail, etc.) are working normally.

Same here- get incoming but it keeps saying the server timed out or there was a problem with the server if I try to send an e-mail.  Comcast stinks.

Unable to send any emails for several hours today.  Tried two different web browsers, and iphone.  None work.

Same issue in Bourbonnais, IL. Can't send via Comcast, have to use Yahoo or Gmail. DO YOUR JOB, COMCAST!!
