[E-mail] Some accounts work some do not?

Very weird issue I'm having here so I'll type it out while I'm on the phone waiting on Comcast to answer.
I tried two online techs yesterday with no solution but I have 5 Comcast.net accounts - 3 of them work fine with my Outlook 2010 the other 2 do not. I tried one of them which is my main account on the website log in and I can see the emails but can't access them when I click on them - the screen just appears to keep tryin to load.
I've tried everything but nothing has worked yet - all the settings are Identical (cept username/passwords) for each account as in incoming/outgoing addy's, ports and whatever but nothing!

Does anyone have any idea what in the world I should do except bug them about it cause I know its not me. I don't know what I should ask for to get them to fix it.

You might want to look at the suggestions I offered to your similar post in another thread: »Re: Has Comcast's spam filters been breached?
We can never have enough of nature.
We need to witness our own limits transgressed, and some life pasturing freely where we never wander.

Not sure why it would work on some account names but not others, unless a large number of emails was causing not to finish loading. or differnt names are stored alphabetically or by creation date on different servers and that server is running slow/dead
I'd try to reach a higher support level, like the direct forum to see if something needs a reboot

ugg i figured it out. The pc of junk new router I got was causing it cause it defaulted to IPv6 and Comcast or at least around here doesn't support it so it was causing all sorts of issues. I purchased this thing from Walmart cause my other better one died and I needed one in a hurry. I took it back after I replaced it with a new flashed to DD-WRT router and told them to stop selling these things here...they will likely ignore me.
