Re: email not sending

Surprise!

 

Aug 1 2012:

In addition, we are asking comcast.net email users to migrate to port 465, which offers SSL encryption. We will continue to support the industry standard port 587.

 

Looks like port 587 is no longer supported.  I found out when my emails from my security cameras quit working.  I switched to 465, and now works.

 

Use port 465 and turn on SSL encryption.

 

WHY wouldn't the bother to send an email to their clients?!  Oh, sorry, we're not clients or customers, we're revenue streams.

Re: email not sending

587 is still supported.

 

Is this error still happening?  Is it intermittent, or every time?
