Comcast outgoing mail problem
I got a message saying my password needed to be changed when I tried to login via the web browser. I changed my password, as required. Since then, I can recieve mail, but mail I send goes to the sent folder, but the recipient does NOT recieve the email. It does not work on either the web client or the iphone. After hours on a chat with Comcast, I rebuilt the mail account about 4 times on my iphone, changed the password several times, but still couldn't get anything to work and left the chat in disgust after being told again to change my password.
- On the web client, accessed by clicking the email icon on the mail login screen, is there a way to find out the setting for the outgoing SMTP server that is being used? I wouldn't think this would be necessary, but I want to make sure.
- On the iphone, the port number for the outgoing SMTP server is set to 587 (as of April 9th, 2020). Is this the correct port? Other threads has shown the port number has changed through the years.
- I am not getting any error messages of any kind. The mail says it sends, then just diappeares into the great abyss. Is there a way to access some kind of log to figure out what's happening?
HELP!!! This is the main email account I've been using for 7 years and I really don't want to have to switch to a new email provider.
