    The host 'email' could not be found. Please verify that you have entered the
    server name correctly.
    Account: 'email', Server: 'email', Protocol: POP3, Port: 110, Secure(SSL):
    No, Socket Error: 11001, Error Number: 0x800CCC0D

    Go to tools>accounts>select your account>properties>server tab.
    And enter the following to the respective server address lines:

    Comcast incoming mail server: mail.comcast.net
    Comcast outgoing mail server: smtp.comcast.net

    You may need to change the outgoing Port number from 25, to 465 on the
    Advanced tab of your account?
    Try sending a mail to yourself prior to doing that.
