What are the Names Of Comcast's Incoming and Outgoing Servers?

I need the names of Comcast's incoming and outgoing E-Mail servers and the type of server, to activate Windows Mail. Where can I find them?

Incoming (pop3):  mail.comcast.net

 

Outgoing (smtp):  smtp.comcast.net   

 

Incoming port : 110

 

outgoing port: 465

 

Hope this helps.

The outgoing port should actually be 587.  Everything else is correct though.

Re: What are the Names Of Comcast's Incoming and Outgoing Servers?

I just received an error msg on Outlook saying they had a problem connecting with SMTP Port 587.  Tried Port 465 and it didn't work either.  Any suggestions?

Hi

I set the incoming port to every combination suggested. I still can not receive email but I can send mail.

The error said the name of the incoming server is wrong but I set it to mail.comcast.net.  It will not work on my XP or windows 7 machine but it will work on my windows 8.1 machine,

Thanks

Bob

I use Windows 7 and Windows Live Mail with Comcast mail accounts.

 

The incoming (pop3) server is:  mail.comcast.net

The Outgoing (smtp) server is: smtp.comcast.net

 

If using Windows Live Mail, on the servers tab, make sure  "Log on using clear text authentication" is checked.

 

Try the port settings  in this screenshot:

My outgoing mail doesn't work. My SMTP says my password is wrong. It is not but how do I change it to make this go away. I can't send mail. HELP
