Incoming mail not working on Android

Incoming mail not working on Android

I set up my email account on my Samsung Android it worked for almost a year just a week or so ago I noticed no new mail.  I tested it and can send mail but can't get any incoming.  I checked the settings and I  have these settings:

 

Incoming :  IMAP.comcast.net

Security type: SSL

Port 993

 

Outgoing:  Smtp

Security type: SSL

Port: 465

 

What am I missing?

Re: Incoming mail not working on Android

If you send yourself an email from some other, non-Comcast email account, does it go through OK?  

 

And the outgoing server name is smtp.comcast.net.  The recommended outgoing server is 587.  You could also try deleting the account from the phone, then recreating it from scratch.
