Not receiving email on iPhone

I changed my password yesterday.  Now I receive a message on my iPhone "The mail server "imap.comcast.net" is not responding.  Verify that you have entered the correct account information in Mail Settings."  I've reset my comcast password on my phone.  I'm receiving emails when I login to my Comcast account on laptop.  What do I need to do to fix the issue on my phone?

Re: Not receiving email on iPhone

In iOS, you need to set the password in two places------for the incoming server, and then again for the outgoing SMTP server. Did you do that? If not, to change it for the SMTP server;


go to "Settings" on the home screen, then scroll down to" Mail, Contacts, Calendars", click on the account, and then on the next screen tap the "account" again. Scroll down to "SMTP" and tap that. Then tap "smtp.comcast.net". On the next screen, you will see the password. Change it and then tap "Done" in the upper right-hand corner of the screen.
