I have recently purchased a new laptop/tablet and it has Outlook 2016 and Windows 10 (both new to me). I have always used Outlook to retrieve my various email accounts; however as I try to add my comcast.net accounts in, I get a fail message. I apparently need different pop3/ imap / and smtp setting information. I am not high tech, but can follow instructions.
Can anyone help? Thanks.
What settings are you using?
Incoming server: mail.comcast.net
Port: 995 with SSL ON
Outing server: SMTP.comcast.net
Port 465 with SSL ON
Under the server tab: THIS SERVER REQUIRES AUTHENTICATIIN must be checked
Do not check: SPA ( secure password authentication)
IF USING IMAP, NOT POP:
Incoming server is IMAP.comcast.net
Incoming Port is 993 with SSL ON
All otter settings remain the same.
