Re: New E-mail Set Up

Are you ONLY using XfinityConnect to access email, or are you also using an email client such as Windows Live Mail, Outlook,etc?  If you do use an email client, post back which ports you are using for POP3 and SMTP.

Windows (Vista) is the host

 

POP3

Incoming is mail.comcast.net

Outgoing is smtp.comcast.net

 

SMTP is 465

Incoming is 995

 

The error message reads:

 

"The connection to the server has failed. Account: 'mailcomcast.net', Server: 'mailcomcast.net', Protocol: POP3, Port: 995, Secure(SSL): Yes, Socket Error: 10061, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E"

I just tried changing the period placement; still getting the exact same error.

Well, I just deleted everything and re-entered.  And to my great delight, my e-mai is now working!!! It must have been the typo. 

 

Thanks for all your help! =)
