Hi Tina,

Your user name and password are used for authentication (Incoming POP3).
Some mail systems also use these for sending mail (Outgoing SMTP).

Do not use Secure Password Authentication (SPA).

E-mail Settings for Comcast:


POP3 (Incoming Mail) Server: mail.comcast.net

SMTP (Outgoing Mail) Server: smtp.comcast.net

Your E-Mail address: e-mail XXXX@XXXXX.COM

Port settings when on the Network: POP port 110 and SMTP port 25

Configure Outlook Express for the first time:

1. Open Outlook Express by clicking on the icon located on your desktop or
click the envelope icon wrapped with a blue arrow located on your toolbar
next to the Start button. If this is your first time launching Outlook
Express, the Internet Connection Wizard will open to guide you through
configuration. If you do not see this window, please proceed to
Reconfiguration of Outlook Express.
2. In the Internet Connection Wizard, type your name in the Display name
field as you would like it to appear when you send e-mail and then click
next
3. Enter your e-mail address in the field provided in the format:e-mail
XXXX@XXXXX.COM
4. Click next
5. In the Incoming Mail (POP3, IMAP or HTTP) server field
enter:mail.comcast.net
6. In the Outgoing Mail (SMTP) field enter:smtp.comcast.net
7. Click next
8. Enter your username in the POP Account Name Field and your password in
the password field (If you do not wish to supply your password each time you
check for incoming mail, verify that the Remember Password box is checked)
9. Click next and then select finish.

If you have any problems sending, click Tools/Accounts - Mail tab and double
click the Comcast mail account, then click the Server tab and you will see a
section for "Outgoing Mail Server" and put a check in the box "My Server
requires authentication" and then click the Settings button and make sure to
use the username and password assigned to you by Comcast.

You will now receive any e-mail currently on the server.

tried everything that you have just listed and I still cannot send emails.
I can recieve emails and send and recieve posts. Is there something that I'm
missing? I even talked to tech support at comcast and they pretty much said
the same thing that you just told me. The first link he gave me was
http://www.comcast.net/help/faq/index.jsp?faq=EmailOutlook_Express17739 the
second link he gave me was http://www.comcast.net/security/ and the third
link he gave me was
http://www.comcast.net/help/faq/index.jsp?faq=NewsgroupsSoftware17506 . I
tried the first and third links, but they didn't help in finding a
resolution to my problem.

t sounds as though you may have a damaged identity. Try creating a new
one, switch to it and set up the mail account in the new identity and test
it. If all works, you can import any mail messages from the older identity.

Look on the menu in Outlook Express: File>Identities>Add New Identity.
