    I just got a new iphone and my comcast outgoing mail does not work on edge or wifi. I changed the outgoing port to465@ 25...why would a new phone matter?

    Port 465 doesn't work for me... I don't get it. This did not happen with my old phone

    Are you using SSL on the outgoing?

    Make sure you are entering your password info correct.


    Comcast also has an online help thing where you can talk to someone. Try using that.

    Thats weird. I entered mine for both the incoming and out going without any numbers I checked the settings on my phone and now there is a :25 at the end, it looks like this now
    host name
    smtp.comcast.net:25

    what works for me now is to put my email address with @comcast.net in the outgoing server login with my password... Before I wasn't putting the @comcast.net... Not sure why that works.
