    Email Set Up in Vista using Comcast Server



    Hello,

    I have spent a few hours trying to set up Windows Mail. I have spoken with
    Dell and Comcast to try and set up. I have also looked at the various
    questions and answers other people have given and I am totally confused. Has
    anyone else had this problem and can you help????

    Here is the error message I receive. I have tried changing various setting
    and here is what I have set

    Under Servers Tab

    Password - checked Log on using Secure Password Authentication

    Checked Outgoing - My servers requires authentication

    Under Advanced

    Outgoing SMTP - 25
    Incoming - 995

    I have checked both boxes that my server requires authentication for both


    Account: 'Kathy ', Server: 'mail.comcast.net', Protocol: POP3, Server
    Response: '.', Port: 995, Secure(SSL): Yes, Error Number: 0x800CCC18

    Have you tried with "Secure Password Authentication" unchecked?

    You should uncheck those two boxes you referenced.
    Comcast does not use them. Under Advanced, the entries
    should be:

    Outgoing Mail (SMTP): 25

    Incoming Mail (POP3): 110

    Also, do not check "This server requires a secure connection"

    Thanks for the quick reply however, I am still struggling. Here is my new
    error message, Account: 'Kathy ', Server: 'mail.comcast.net', Protocol:
    POP3, Server Response: '-ERR login failed', Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No,
    Server Error: 0x800CCC90, Error Number: 0x800CCC92

    I unchecked under servers log on using secure password and in outgoing my
    server requires authentication.

    In advanced I unchecked both outgoing and incoming "this server requires a
    secure connection.

    Is there anything else I could try?

    It looks like you are getting bombarded with advice...
    sorry about that... One thing I would stress is that you make one change
    at a time then test it so you can tell what does or doesn't work.

    Ignore my suggestion until you've tried Carey's advice.

    Instead of just trying a bunch of different settings randomly,
    why not use the ones your ISP tells you to use:

    I am experiencing exactly the same behavior using the information provided by
    Comcast. Same error message. Same port. Not using SSL.

    Re: Email Set Up in Vista using Comcast Server


    under the server tab, have you tried supplying your full email address where
    it asks for "E-mail User Name" ??? IOW, something like Kathy@xxxxxx
    ??

    That just did the trick for me.
