there are detailed instructions on how to resolve this issue referenced in this thread:
I don't work for Comcast...
I too am able to recieve inbound mail but cannot send outbound mail ???
I have Windows XP
The connection to the server has failed. Account: 'mail.comcast.net', Server: 'smtp.comcast.net', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10013, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E
This has been going on for over a week. PLEASE help me fix this problem
I am having the exact same problem as of 2/25/13. Incoming mail is being recieved but outgoing mail isn't being delivered.
OS: Windows 7.
I use the latest version of Firefox.
This is my question: when you say "port," port =SMTP, correct? I see here, and other places, that port 25 needs to be changed to 587. I went unde Properties and next to Outoing mail, changed the SMTP from 25 to 587 and the other number I found, I think it was 486. Neither worked.
Any other suggestions? Same problem with my old laptop, which has Outlook 2003 and Vista (yea, I know, I need to upgrade.)
