OUTLOOK EMAIL stopped accepting downloads from Comcast

OUTLOOK EMAIL stopped accepting downloads from Comcast

Not sure what happened.  I've recently updated my O.S. on my ancient computer and things were working fine till about a week ago.  Suddenly without notice, Outlook, (2003,) stopped connecting to comcast.net and off loading my emails to my Outlook.

 

After reading the support pages and countless resets and "starting new" emails and etc., I still cannot get my Comcast mail to download to my Outlook inbox.

 

Any and all help would be appreciated.

 

Thanks.

First Outlook 2003 is no longer supported at all by Microsoft.  It is time to change email programs.   You can use a free email program such as Windows Live Mail, Gmail, Thunderbird, or you can use Comcast's Xfinity Connect for email.

 

Please post back with what settings you now have set up in Outlook 2003 so we can review them.
