microsoft Outlook can not find comcast server

I am trying to use Microsoft Outlook for my email activity via comcast mail. When I use the Outlook wizard to set up, it is able to connect to the internet but can not find the comcast server. I could set up using the manual method, but I don't know the comcast server incoming and outgoing address.
