I don't know what was causing the blank replies, if it wasn't some part
of the 'read receipt function. You did well to move on to Windows Live
Mail. As for your two Comcast accounts, it sounds like neither has the
correct settings. Comcast has shifted from port 25 to port 587 for SMTP,
but their POP server is still on port 110 (no SSL), not port 995.
The complete settings are documented here:
