I have a service announcement from Comcast, my provider, that I should not continue use of portal 25 for apple mail (Apple OS X). Please let me know  if there is another portal I can use for apple mail.

Re: Xfinity and port 25

The announcement is regarding the TCP port used to send mail from a mail client such as Outlook, Thunderbird, Eudora, etc...if you log in and check your mail using a web browsers at the Xfinity Connect site, there are no changes you need to make.

 

If you use a mail client installed on your PC, you need to make the changes as described in the notification.
