Validation of server imap.comcast.net failed due to invalid credentials.

Frequent Visitor

Validation of server imap.comcast.net failed due to invalid credentials.

Here we go again.

 

I changed a secondary pw, and now I cannot get back into the mailbox.


I get the error:  "Validation of server imap.comcast.net failed due to invalid credentials."

 

I have changed the pw in the settings, but the outgoing pw is greyed out and has a red circle with a line though it.

 

Really, Comcast, why have you created such a mess?

Re: Validation of server imap.comcast.net failed due to invalid credentials.

Thanks, but I've done three of them already.

 

Sometimes it works, sometimes not.

 

It is frustrating that the "new system" is failing so horribly.
