Mail on IPad/IPhone won't recognize User Name & Password from Comcast Email account

Mail on IPad/IPhone won't recognize User Name & Password from Comcast Email account

I can not get Email on my IPad and IPhone and MacBook Air to connect to my Comcast account.

 

This started on or about 2/19/15, before all worked fine.  I started getting "Can't get mail" from my Comcast account.  I have deleted the account and attempted to Add Account back.

 

As I Add Account I choose other, Add Mail Account, enter my Name, Email, Password, Description.  It attempts to Verify, and returns "Cannot Get Mail, The user name or password for "imap.comcast.net" is incorrect.

 

I have gone to the Comcast web site (comcast.net) and signed in to my account.  To be sure I reset my password so I'm sure I have the one that works on my account.  My user name was confirmed by logging in, I know what Comcast thinks my user name and password are.

 

Now I go back to Add Account and do it all over (10 times or so) with the same result: Cannot Get Mail, the user name or password for "imap.comcast.net" is incorrect.  Where do I go from here???

Make sure your username and password match CASE exactly, especially your password.  b2@ngel is not the same as B2@ngel.
