[E-mail] Comcast Mail Server Inaccessible from OS X Mail App
There's a topic (»Comcast email completely stopped working on both Macs) in the "All Things Macintosh" board where Mac users using the Mail application cannot access the Comcast mail server (mail.comcast.net). I ran into this problem Thursday night and since there isn't much of a solution on ATM, I thought I'd see if anyone in this forum has a solution.
I use Mail.app on 10.6.8 with the same settings (mail.comcast.net, 995 SSL, Password) and it has been working just fine for me.
On Sat 6-30 I did have some problems with some web sites that is-it-just-me sites also said were down. There have been massive power outages in the mid-atlantic states. I don't know whether that affected some internet connectivity but maybe your path to the comcast servers was interrupted. Just a guess.
Double checked my settings and everything matches the setting you provided in the link. Still not sure what's going on but it sounds like this is more isolated than I originally thought. Thanks for the help guys!
