Your Outlook stops sending your Comcast emails

So over the past few years Comcast has updated security measures in the POP3 email server. Some of these updates look to be directed at 3rd party email software end users like to fetch their mail off the Comcast server.So they have sent out notices regarding "work arounds" for the issue of getting an error response "authentication needed". Now please note folks like every other ISP Comcast does not guarantee or support 3rd party vender software you obtain with your PC or have purchased anywhere but from Comcast.
3rd party would be anything that the ISP does not maintain or have rights to that an end user "YOU" have purchased from another software vender.The original setup for 3rd party email clients "Outlook mainly" which used to be supported in years past was:
Now the incoming has remained the same throughout however outbound has changed a couple of times to So recently I seen the new outbound they wanted changed to
So I tried this and it just didn't work and I went back to the Here as of today I realized my outbound again stopped working. So what has happened now the server wants to look at your user name and password a second time as well the outbound listening port which always worked on port 25 now likes port 587.
Here are the steps to make these changes to your Outlook email client.
Open your Outlook click "tools" then "account settings" click on your email address your using for Comcast. Bottom right click "more settings" click "outgoing server" click the tab that says "My server (smtp) requires authentication" click "log on using" fill in the user name and password for your Comcast account minus the it does not need your email routing extension here.
Now click OK and go back in the same way you just did except instead of clicking the "outbound server" choice the last tab that says "Advanced" The only thing your going to change here is the "outgoing server (smtp)" from 25 to 587. Click ok and that's it your done.

Hi Frances,

Usually email providers have a method to recover an email address that can no longer be accessed by the owner. If you have a web email provider or a 3rd party email provider like gmail, hotmail, yahoo - you can simply click "forgotten password" or "forgotten username" on the login page. If order for these to work though - you'll have had to have set up the account with security questions or alternate email addresses for the info to be sent to you to view. If you did not do either, you will have to try guessing the password or username or contact the provider's support people. Ultimately, if you can not provide proof that you own the email account I'm afraid your access to it will be lost.

If however your email is provided by your internet service provider (ISP) such as Comcast, Cox, ATT, Verizon, etc., you should be able to regain access to the email account by contacting the ISP's tech support people.

Good luck!

Email default setting not installed correctly.

Your Internet Service Provider (ISP) should be able to help you correctly set up your computer to access your emails. Regardless of the email software you use they all require you to set up the email accounts. In Windows Live Mail when you first open this you would need to click on Tools > Accounts> Add > Email account. You then need to type in the new email address, pass word and display name for that email address. In the next window you require the correct information which your ISP will give you (i.e. POP 3, incoming mail and out going mail ). This then will complete the setup process.
However if you need to urgently receive and read your emails why not go to This is a free service and it allows you to access your emails no matter where you are in the world. All you have to do is type in your email address and the password that you use to access your emails and "Voila" this service will download copies of all your emails. Later when you have fixed the problem with the help of your ISP you will be able to download all those emails again in the normal manner to store or delete as you choose..

Changed ISP, can't get into facebook account

the joys of having your email address from your isp - did that myself and had similar problems.
the email address doesn't have to exist for you to get into facebook, only if they need to send you a message so there must have been another issue.
if you're certain the email address and password are correct, it should let you in (forget the fact the email address is gone - it doesn't matter at this point)
facebook doesn't always ask you the security question you set in the first place.
if all else fails, there is only one answer - a new account
