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?)

That must be a SMTP server connection error.

Go here:

http://help.comcast.net/

Type 'email settings windows mail'

....and click on the first search result. I am unable to give you a direct
link, as it's a javascript popup.

Make sure your SMTP settings are correct.

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

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
