For 24 hours I have not received any comcast email on either my Mac Pro or my iPad. Both had been working for years before this problem. Now comcast support tells me it must be my problem because their server checks out OK. So they're trying to tell me that something changed on both my Mac Pro and my iPad at the same time that caused me to get an "unable to connect to imap.comcast.net". I didn't change any configuration. The support girl even had me delete the account on my iPad so I could re-add it "properly". That didn't work because when trying to add the comcast account I got a, you guessed it: "imap.comcast.net is not responding" error message. They still insist it's my fault.
Odd that every thing else on the internet works including GMail. I can also get my mail by logging into my two accounts on the comcast website but is that really considered an efficient way to handle email?!
For the time being I'm having my comcast email forwarded to other gmail accounts. At least Google still can handle email.
