    Can receive but not send email from Windows Mail

    I set up a Windows Mail account using my Comcast email servers. I can
    receive but not send email. Get error 10060. I am home now but would like
    to send and receive Comcast email from hotels while traveling. Anyway to do
    this (other than thru their website?)

    You have to be connected to Comcast in order to send using port 25.
    Try the following...

    Re: Can receive but not send email from Windows Mail

    There are two changes that Comcast made to send mail:
    Port 25 must be changed to 587 and you must check "My server requires
    authentication."

    Open Windows Mail
    click tools
    Accounts
    "Your mail service"
    Properties
    Under servers tab check "My server requires authentication."
    Under advanced tab change "Outgoing mail (smtp)" from 25 to 587.

    Change your outgoing server (SMTP) port to 587 from 25
