Unable to send or receive messages for the Comcast. Your server has unexpectedly terminated the connection.

Unable to send or receive messages for the Comcast. Your server has unexpectedly terminated the connection.

I have been getting the same message for two days.  Customer Service at Comcast says that they don't yet have a solution.  It reads;

 

"Unable to send or receive messages for the Comcast (my name) account. Your server has unexpectedly terminated the connection. Possible causes for this include server problems, network problems, or a long period of inactivity.

Server: 'mail.comcast.net'
Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x800CCC0F
Protocol: POP3
Port: 110
Secure(SSL): No

 

When will this be fixed?

Re: Unable to send or receive messages for the Comcast. Your server has unexpectedly terminated the connection.

Try switching to these settings:

 

Incoming server: mail.comcast.net

Incoming Port: 995 with SSL ON

Outgoing server:  SMTP.comcast,net

Outgoing Port: 465 withbSSL ON

 

UNDER TGECSERVER TAB:  THIS SERVER REQUIRES AUTHENTICATION  must be checked.

Do NOT  check SPA ( secure password authentication.
