Cannot send email from my Outlook Express

Cannot send email from my Outlook Express

I cannot send messages from my Outlook Express account on my PC.  Works fine when sending messages from the Comcast.com email.

 

Here's the message I get:

 

The connection to the server has failed.  Account: 'mail.comcast.net', Server: 'SMTP.comcast.net', Port 25, Secure(SSL): Socket Error: 10060, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E

Thanks much.

 

I didn't use imap, used mail.comcast.net instead - port 110.

 

Used 587 outgoing mail.

 

Works great.
