The server returned the error: The attempt to read data from the server “imap.comcast.net” failed.

The server returned the error: The attempt to read data from the server “imap.comcast.net” failed.

I get this message on my desktop computer when I try to get mail: The server returned the error: The attempt to read data from the server “imap.comcast.net” failed.

 

When I try to get mail on my iPhone or iPad, I get this message: The mail server "imap.comcast.net" is not responding. Verify that you have entered the correct account info in Mail settings.

 

I have verified that my account info is correct.  Is Comcast having issues with their server today?

There is an outage, but I don't know what areas are affected by it------------------
