Comcast email won't let me send an email

Suddenly I can't send an email. The message I get is that "can't connect to account smtp.comcast.net.  I enter my user name and password, then I get a message saying "unable to verify account name or password."  This happened yesterday too.  After hours trying to sort it out, I finally got it to work.  Can't remember how.  Now today it's happening again.
