Re: comcast email is down

I just tested my access to comcast.net email, and I was able to send a message from a bellsouth.net account to a comcast.net account, and then reply to that message with no problems (the messages went through in both directions within a second of clicking the send button).

Unless it was just a temporary glitch that you encountered (or it was spam detection related), you may have a problem with your account, but Comcast residential email in general is not down.

FWIW, the above test was done using web mail, but SMTP and POP3 also seem to be working:


webhost:/ # telnet smtp.comcast.net 587
Trying 76.96.40.155...
Connected to smtp.comcast.net.
Escape character is '^]'.
220 omta19.emeryville.ca.mail.comcast.net comcast ESMTP server ready
quit
221 2.0.0 omta19.emeryville.ca.mail.comcast.net comcast closing connection
Connection closed by foreign host
 
webhost:/ # telnet smtp.comcast.net 25
Trying 76.96.40.155...
Connected to smtp.comcast.net.
Escape character is '^]'.
220 omta18.emeryville.ca.mail.comcast.net comcast ESMTP server ready
quit
221 2.0.0 omta18.emeryville.ca.mail.comcast.net comcast closing connection
Connection closed by foreign host.
 
webhost:/ # telnet pop.comcast.net 110
Trying 76.96.40.158...
Connected to pop.comcast.net.
Escape character is '^]'.
+OK POP3 ready
quit
+OK
Connection closed by foreign host.
 
 


If you are still experiencing problems, post again and provide some more details on what you mean by "comcast email is down", and perhaps you can get some troubleshooting advice.
