Help! I can send emails, but I can't receive them.

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Mail' started by Linda Canestraro, Dec 18, 2008.

  1. I hate Vista. Nothing but problems since I got it in Feb. 2008. Now I can't
    send emails unless I go through Comcast email versus Windows Mail that my
    computer guy set up. He doesn't make house calls anymore. Told me to check
    the settings for server, but I don't know how to locate the settings on my
    computer. How do I find this? Help!

    To edit your account settings:
    - Click "Tools"
    - Click "Accounts"
    - Select the email account to edit
    - Click "Properties" on the right side
    - Go to the "Server" tab
    ~ Comcast incoming mail server (POP3): mail.comcast.net
    ~ Comcast outgoing mail server (SMTP): smtp.comcast.net
    - Go to the "Advanced" tab
    ~ POP3 Port: 25
    ~ SMTP Port: 110
    * The guide doesn't specify whether to use SSL or not, so I would disable the SSL
    checkbox under both port boxes.
    - Click "Apply"
    - Click "OK"

    Now try to Send/Recieve or Synchronize, and see if it works.

  6. Not sure what you mean. Do you mean you have enabled the
    option "Request a read receipt for all sent messages"?
    That option won't work unless the recipient has his email
    client configured to confirm receipts. It takes two to tango.
