SMTP service not working with Opera Mail Client

SMTP service not working with Opera Mail Client

Hi,

I'm trying to send email using Opera Mail Client.  Settings are 
Server: smtp.comcast.net

Port: 587

Secure Connection (TLS) is checked

Authentication: AUTH PLAIN

I've entered my Username and Password in the appropriate boxes.

 

The email is being sent and seems to be accepted by the comcast server (it is in my "sent" folder)  but I am not receiving it.  I'm sending it a email account that I control that has no spam filters applied.  Any ideas?

 

Thanks

I am having the same issue with Windows Live Mail 2012.  Very frustrating.  It was working and then starting yesterday, it is not.

Thanks,

I sent you a private message about this a moment ago.

Private Messages (PM's)

At the top of each Forum page you will see a small envelope

This is the icon for Private Messages, referred to as `PM's'. A Private Message is a way to communicate in private, to another User, Moderator, or Administrator out of public view in the Forums.

The gray envelope icon will have a number next to it if you have any new messages waiting.

To open a PM to read it, double click on the envelope. If you click on the white envelope a window will open with tabs for your Private Message Inbox, Sent Messages, Friends, Ignored Users, and Compose new Message. You can also access this area by clicking on the Username in a Thread or post. By default, Private Messages are enabled. You can disable this feature in My Settings>Preferences> Private Messenger.
