    I have not changed any settings, I've spent time on the phone with Comcast and they said it's the email client. The thing is I haven't touched my email client. I can recieve email, but I can't send. It keeps telling me SMTP server rejected the email.

    I do not have any anti-virus programs running.

    Sometimes I can create a new email and it will send fine. But I can't reply to an email. I'm pulling my hair out this is so frustrating!

    It's not your client. My family has Comcast email (which used to be Adelphia email until recently) and pretty much since the day Comcast switched the system over, they've been having endless problems with connectivity.

    I've only got one report, but a friend of mine is also having intermittent trouble with his PoP3 email client through comcast.

    Call them and get a *list* of SMTP servers to choose from. That'll give you some options until they get things stable.

    So you think the SMTP server isn't stable and they have other smtp.comcast.net type servers?

    I would double check the POP and SMTP server port numbers. I know that Comcast uses ones other than the normal. (25 & 110). I set a Comcast user up a few weeks ago and found that out. Also, I would check that your SMTP is supposed to use your login/password as well.

    I've set it up to use my login and password and it still didn't work. Also I looked up the ports needed and set them right.
