I can no long send email out, although I can receive.


Long time ago I had Comcast set to forward my email to VQME who strips spam and frowards rest to me.


Currently using Microsoft Live mail and have both Comcast and VQME email accounts.


Email will go to outbox then I get error msg. - can't send on VQME.


Any way to get some help on this?


I think VQME is now Postini

Re: email

Have you checked your settings in VQME?


Make sure that your outgoing server is:SMTP.comcast.net

Outgoing Port should be: 465 with SSL on

Under tye Server tab, this server requires Authentication must be checked.
