IMAP not working

I've been connected to email via IMAP for years, using Outlook. yesterday stopped working, Outlook error 0X800CCC0E. I can send mail fine, but receiving is not working. Settings are: imap.comcast.net, port 993, SSl/TLS

ps: My wife has the same problem.  But mail on my Android/Outlook partially works.

Re: IMAP not working

Amazing. Another data point: My problem is on my desktop PC, with wired connection to my home LAN; my provider is not Comcast. I also have a laptop. I tried Outlook there, connected by wifi to home LAN -- same problem. Then I connected my laptop to a wifi hotspot on my phone and bam! email works!

 

This problem is clearly in Comcast' network, if you are lucky enough to connect to the right backend IMAP node, things work; connect to the wrong node, it don't work.
