I have same thing DL to Samsung phone.

I got around this by going into the settings and changing the security type form SSL to NONE.

now this puts your email at risk of hacking, but allows emails to get through.

not sure how else to solve

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:
Incoming-mail.comcast.net
Outbound-mail.comcast.net
Now the incoming has remained the same throughout however outbound has changed a couple of times to smtp.comcast.net. So recently I seen the new outbound they wanted changed to imap.comcast.net
So I tried this and it just didn't work and I went back to the smtp.comcast.net. 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 @comcast.net 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.

The host 'PoP3"means what


Make sure your password and server name are correct on the email account, and make sure the server you are useing for outgoing mail is a pop3 server. Your provider for internet services may not be a pop3 server on your outgoing mail, it may be a smtp server or something like that for outgoing mail. Check in your email account properties to see what your outgoing mail server says, incoming and outgoing can be different depending on your supplier.

I am useing Microsoft Outlook and keep getting a message when I try to send emails, Your outgoing smtp email server has reported an internal error if you contiune to receive this message contact your...


The problem is clearly indicated on the error code.

"the server responded 521 user is over the limit for messages to be sent in a single day."

Have you been sending a lot of messages using that account? From yahoo:

The limit for messages for yahoo is 100 per hour, max 500 per day.

If you believe that you are the one not doing this, you can either report this to yahoo or checked your Yahoo! account immediately. Change the security settings and most specially the passwords. It could be that your account is used as a spam bot.

I cant receive or send emails or BB Instant Messages on my BB


It needs to say "GPRS" or "EDGE" in the top right hand corner in captial letters. If there is lower case letters, this indicates the phone is having an issue with the data connection.

Have you been able to send/receive email whilst in the country you are in now?

Most obvious things first, remove the battery, then re-insert and reboot. This will reboot the phone and create a new connection to the Blackberry server. Let me know how that goes.

Email's


You are with lrger e-mails in your server, blocking the download of all e-mails by Outlook. Every time you try to receive all again, the same comes, even if you have deleted them, you just do this in your computer!
The solution is enter in yours e-mail server by the webmail, delete all the big e-mails that there are there, then go out, and try to receive the ones that are still there, by outlook.
