SMPT outgoing email

My new phone is asking for the outgoing SMPT password and I don't remember it. How do I reset it?

Re: SMPT outgoing email

It is the same password as the email or webmail login 


You can change it for an email account of the account by going to the link below.  But you need the primary account password to get there.




If you don't know it you can try this

Re: SMPT outgoing email

IF using POP servers, your settings are:

Outgoing server: smtp.comcast.net

Outgoing Port is 465 with SSL on

Incoming server: mail.comcast.net

Incoming Port is 995 with SSL on

This server requires authentication must be checked (server tab)

Do not check SPA ( secure password authentication)
