Host names for incoming and outgoing e-mail and Ports for each I am setting up Outlook.

Host names for incoming and outgoing e-mail and Ports for each I am setting up Outlook.

I used imap.comcast.net for incoming and smpt.comcast.net for outgoing but cannot send e-mail out. Only the incoming works. Used the default ports.
