Email set up for Outlook 2011 for Mac

How do you set up comcast email for Outlook 2011 for Mac? It defaults to POP when I try to add it as a new account. Then when I make the suggested changes it to get to IMAP settings (imap.comcast.net on port 993 and smtp.comcast.net on port 587) it errors when it tries to connect. Error reads: OK IMAP4 ready, could not retrieve email, error code 16997. Thanks.
