I guess I can't just take a screen print of something and post it without doing something else to it, because what came across is UGLY! Let me try again to convey what I was attempting to show you:
I had used the settings in the link that Irene had posted and received an error that the account doesn't support SPA, so unchecked that box and everything was working fine this morning. Now I have email sitting out in my comcast.com account that can't come through and I'm getting an error: Task 'Tina - Receiving' reported error (0x800408FC) : 'The server name you entered can not be found on the network (it might be down temporarily). Please verify that you are online and that the server name is correct.'
Since receiving that message I've logged onto Comcast.com and viewed the email that won't feed through to Outlook, so I have internet connection and comcast isn't having a problem. My Outlook settings for Comcast email are: POP3, my full email in the Username, mail.comcast.net and smtp.comcast.net;
Under More Settings: Outgoing Server tab = box is checked for authentication; Advanced tab = neither box checked, Incoming = 110; Outgoing = 587.
However, I can evidently SEND email, even though I'm receiving this error - I just can't RECEIVE it. And my gmail is now coming through Outlook without any problem. I may be back to forwarding my comcast email to gmail. Any ideas why this would work for a bit and then stop working?
