    Where do I find the information on my comcast.net account to set up a new

    If you want to be able to send email while away from home, you might want to
    use port 587....

    Comcast seems to be shifting to exclusive use of port 587 only for
    SMTP service. But I am not confident that even their port 587 service
    can be used off the Comcast network.
