For Gmail, use port 465 with SSL. This has always been required for Gmail
For Comcast, if you had a viral infection, your computer may have been a
spam spewer, and gotten your access to the Comcast SMTP message submission
server on port 25 blocked. Fortunately, Comcast offers a message submission
access for their traveling customers which requires configuring your mail
client in a similar fashion to Gmail: use port 465 with SSL enabled. For
Comcast, be sure to use your full '%User_IDfirstname.lastname@example.org' as your username,
along with your account password.
