I am all of a sudden getting email logon rejected.
Task 'email@example.com - Sending' reported error (0x800CCC80) : 'None of the authentication methods supported by this client are supported by your server.'
Task 'firstname.lastname@example.org - Receiving' reported error (0x800CCC18) : 'Your e-mail server rejected your login with Secure Password Authentication (SPA). Verify your account properties. Under Tools, click E-mail accounts.'
Can't get through on the phone sitting on hold for almost an hour

Microsoft says it is a Comcast problem
I was having the same problems. None of my email accounts were working, not even for my google email. I looked at my settings and unchecked "Require logon using Secure Password Authentication (SPA)" and it started working. It is a bit slow, but I think it is a Microsoft problem, because I didn't have any problems until after I updated my computer.

You were absolutely correct. Comcast's mail servers do not use the SPA function.
