Windows 10, Windows Live Mail, 1 out of 3 Comcast email accounts will not connect

Windows 10, Windows Live Mail, 1 out of 3 Comcast email accounts will not connect

Hello,

 

I am using Windows 10 and Windows Live Mail to handle all my emails. Starting a couple weeks back, one of my Comcast accounts will no longer connect. All 3 Comcast accounts use the same settings (except username and passwords). The other 2 accounts go just fine, it is only this one (my main account BTW).

 

I get the following error:

 

Unable to send or receive messages for the silverspyder1996 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: 995
Secure(SSL): Yes

 

Any advice on how to fix this?

Thank you.
