    I just got my MBP a week ago and I am trying to get my mail account setup. I am using comcast internet services and I can send messages but I can not receive them. I setup an Imap account but it says port 993 timed out. Sorry for the noob question. :D

    What port does comcast recommend using? There may be another one that you're not using...

    Do you still have your old computer to compare settings against?

    Well normally I use the comcast email from their website so I guess I will do a little research to see what I can do to fix it.

    I got it to working now. I switched from an imap to a pop account.
