email settings

Sending email takes a long time. Have just run thru "configure outlook 2010 for comcast email" from comcast help-and-support and Outlook can't perform the test succesfully with these settings:  get message "cannot connect to outgoing email server".

Incoming Server (IMAP) 993 SSL

Outgoing Server(SMTP) 587 TLS  as per the instructions above.

 

Windows 7, Outlook 2010.

This slowness has been going on for a week or so, finally decided to try to fix it. 

 

Any ideas as to what the currently correct settings should be?

 

Thanks!

Re: email settings

The settings for both IMAP and POP3 are found here--------------

The only thing I see that you have different is TLS instead of SSL on the smtp server.
