Re: Apple Mail 8

Did you try deleting and re-creating the account?

Re: Apple Mail 8

This is still a problem for me for outgoing mail. Do I need to delete any keychains or disable the "TSL Certificate?"

 

I'm using port 587, Using SSL, but the smtp.comcast.net is still offline.

Assuming you are using Mac Mail, just open it and go into the settings and delete the account, then re-create it.

How did you "wipe out" your old account and reinstall?

I fixed it on my iMac by wiping out my comcast email completely and reinstalled from fresh.  Works without issue now.

Re: Apple Mail 8

I am having the same issue.  I can not send mail from Apple Mail 8.1 on my iMac.  I've tried just about everything.  I just deleted my account and will try and setup fresh.  Anyone fix this?

Apple Mail 8

I'm having trouble sending mail. I keep getting the message cannot send message using the server: smtp.comcast.net:username The SMTP connection to the server smtp.comcast.net failed.

 

Then in the smtp server list, smtp.comcast.net:username (offline)

 

Not sure why this is offline. There are no guides on setting up Apple Mail 8, so I don't have any screenshots to compare to.
