    I can receive mail but cannot send. I have been able to do both for 6 months
    or more. Now it returns the following:

    The connection to the server has failed. Subject 'test', Account:
    'pop.comcast.net', Server: 'smtp.comcast.net', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25,
    Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10060, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E

  5. On the Servers tab, make sure you check the box for "My server
    requires authentication".

    Thanks for the help everybody. The main problem was the port number. If
    Comcast notified me, I can't find any proof of it. Johnny
