I've seen a lot of posts related to changing POP/IMAP settings to retain or regain access to Comcast.net accounts. I haven't had to do that, but I have had another issue that could be related to changes Comcast has made recently.
Starting about mid-November when I access my email account(s) using Outlook 365 on my PC, when a send/receive (S/R) is executed, the response time has increased substantially. Prior, the S/R would access the servers within 1-2 seconds. Now the S/R access takes 11-20+ seconds EVERY time.
I have no problems actually accessing the servers and I do get all the emails. The configuration I used in September after updating to Outlook 365 still works today.
But, can anyone explain why the response time during a S/R request has slowed so much?
It's not so bad that I can't do anything, but I haven't seen anything or been sent any information explaining this impact or telling me to expect it.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Well, no help from anyone here in 2 weeks...
But I have been doing some investigating on my own.
First, I also noticed a (Windows 10) event log issue with a name resolution for the Comcast.net servers was timing out after none of the "configured DNS servers responded".
So I flushed the DNS cache on my PC.
Now Outlook is connecting quickly to the Comcast servers again and all my S/R requests are completing back at normal 1-2 seconds response times.
