SMTP mail question regarding setting password

SMTP mail question regarding setting password

I asked this earlier but perhaps I wasn't clear. This isn't an email outage question. I can receive email onto my iPhone but when I send a reply to one of those emails I get this message: "SMTP:myname@smtp.comcast.net" is incorrect. (Of course, 'myname' is shown as my email name.) Where would I find the input option to check my user name or password? If I'm receiving emails, shouldn't I be able to send out too?

Re: SMTP mail question regarding setting password

On the phone in iOS, you need to change the password in two places------for the incoming server, and then again for the outgoing smtp server. Did you do that? If not, to change it for the smtp server;


go to "Settings" on the home screen, then scroll down to" Mail, Contacts, Calendars", click on the account, and then on the next screen tap the "account" again. Scroll down to "SMTP" and tap that. Then tap "smtp.comcast.net". On the next screen you will see the password. Change it and then tap "Done" in the upper right hand corner of the screen.
