Question about Apple iPhone Smartphone
I put in all of the info that comcast told me to and when i asked my phone to save it said,,, cannot connect using SSL,,, do you want totry setting up the account w/out SSL.
what does this mean? Kevin
I was also experiencing many issues with the iphones email system but have managed to find a fix.
Simply tap settings on the home screen.
Then tap the mail icon on the bottom of the settings screen.
Click Add Account (for an easier interface to modify)
In the add account screen click the 5th option down entitled "other"
Now by default the iphone has the imap tab highlighted, instead you will need to tap the "POP" tab instead
Now that thats out of the way Insert your name in the name tab.
Next insert your email address this will account will reflect (enter the whole thing as in firstname.lastname@example.org
Next you add your description in to help you identiy what email your going to check. for example (Comcast.net Or Jacks email)
Now under the incoming mail server part type in "mail.comcast.net" (without the "")
The username tab requires you to type in your username that you log on to comcasts web email with (somtimes different from your actual email address) (example) email is email@example.com and username is dogman6.
Under the password line type in your password you log onto comcasts web email with
Finally under the outgoing mail server (smtp) list type the list as follows.......
Host Name smtp.comcast.net:465
User Name Same as the incoming
Password Also the same as the incoming
Click the save button and your done. now the email should send and recieve without any issues. If you do experience a problem go to comcast.net and go into you web email account. Then under the settings change the options to allow a non ssl account to assces the email.
That should do it good luck

You need to set it up with POP not IMAP

SSL is the secure socket layer. SSL provides encrypted flow of traffic for your email. If your provider does not have SSL, you will need to connect without this additional level of security.
