email settings for Outlook 2016 on windows 10

email settings for Outlook 2016 on windows 10

I have recently purchased a new laptop/tablet and it has Outlook 2016 and Windows 10 (both new to me).  I have always used Outlook to retrieve my various email accounts; however as I try to add my comcast.net accounts in, I get a fail message.  I apparently need different pop3/ imap / and smtp setting information. I am not high tech, but can follow instructions.

Can anyone help?  Thanks.

Re: email settings for Outlook 2016 on windows 10

What settings are you using?

POP SETTINGS

 

Incoming server: mail.comcast.net

Port: 995 with SSL ON

Outing server: SMTP.comcast.net

Port 465 with SSL  ON

Under the server tab:  THIS SERVER REQUIRES AUTHENTICATIIN must be checked

Do not check:  SPA ( secure password authentication)

 

IF USING IMAP, NOT POP:

Incoming server is IMAP.comcast.net

Incoming Port is 993 with SSL ON

 

All otter settings remain the same.
