Question about Dell Inspiron 1200 Notebook
When I try and sign in it says it cannot access that web page or sometimes it say Bad Request. I have talked to Comcast about it and they say it is a problem in the computer. They can access my e-mail and I can access it from another remote location, but not on my computer. I have tried everything from clearing the cache, disabling virus protection, downloading Internet Explorer Version 7, etc. Do you have any idea? If you send me an e-mail with a solution, I can't access it. My phone number is 662-890-7444 I can't launch my comcast mail from home to log in but I can from other computers.
FYI, I use Thunderbird as my mail client and rarely access the mail via the ISP site.
You can try that. Your pop setting should be mail.comcast.net
Your SMTP settting should be mail.comcast.net
Set it up with your username and password and check it out.
You may have to tell the program to use the same username and password for the SMTP server as the incoming mail.

I have had the same problem. It seems that my router has been blocking comcast for some reason. I created a DMZ and placed my laptop outside of the routers firewall. ( The router is a wireless trendnet tew-633gr that I have bridged to a netgear wired router. I also have Norton firewall.

I had this same problem off and on for a year on both my desktop and laptop. I'd sometimes get to the sign in screen and other times not. Sometimes I'd get lucky and actually be able to sign in and view email but most of the time I'd just see a white or blue screen. It drove me crazy. I cleaned my registry and all temp files, defraged everything, reloaded Firefox, tried Internet Explorer, called Comcast for help. Nothing worked until I did the obvious. The solution is simple. Unplug your ipod charging cord to your USB port. I do not know why this fixes the problem but it does instantly! If you do not have an ipod cord then unplug all your USB plug and play devices and try again. ipod USB chargers have caused me other problems in the past. This was how I was reminded how to fix this problem. NEVER leave your ipod USB cord pluged in when you are not using it for your ipod.

Try downloading Mozilla Firefox, if it works with that you know it is something to do with internet explorer.
Check you outgoing mail (SMTP) it should be set to 587
Incoming mail (POP#3) should be 110

SOURCE: Can't access my comcast e-mail.
did comcast recently buy out your company where it is now your default company...depending on the original company.
do you use outlook express or microsoft mail...?
try setting your email address through there, or get a yahoo, hotmail, gmail, or anyother type of browser email.
