I'm out of town, cannot send mail with comcast server. It has worked everywhere but where I am today. How can I send mail?
What error are you getting? Please ensure you're using port 587 or 465 when sending your messages.
All of my settings are correct. port is set to 465. username and password are correct. Nothing has changed since it last worked. I have rentered the password in both places, just to be sure, but nothing I've tried has helped.
"The connection to the server “smtp.comcast.net” on port 995 timed out.
Select a different outgoing mail server from the list below or click Try Later to leave the message in your Outbox until it can be sent."
smtp.comcast.net is not port 995. 995 is the port for secure POP3 access. You might want to also check your POP settings.
Take a peek at these, see if they're similar to your email client.
Apple mail. Everything works except outgoing mail. Set up according to the Apple Mail instructions, except that my email accounts are all POP3. I want to repeat that everything has worked perfectly up till a few days ago, at which time, I got the cannot sent mail message. This has happened several times before, but always fixed itself after a few hours. So incredibly frustrating.
