Re: Can't send 3rd party email (i.e. me@mycompany.com) through smtp.comcast.net

Same problem here, started yesterday evening.

Tried changing the outgoing port to 587 and 465 but no change

Which version of Outlook are you using please?

 

Try changing SMTP Port to 465 with SSL ON

Check that this server requires authentication is checked

SPA ( secure pass word authentication) should NOT be checked
