SETTING UP EMAIL...CAN ANYONE HELP??

I have comcast and have been reading all the boards and understand that there is a serious problem being able to send email out. Unfortunately, I can't figure out how to set up my email to even receive. Iam very computerilliterate and I am totally confused. Is there anyone out there that can possibly walk me through it? The order I did things were

MORE

OTHER POP

MY EMAIL ADDRESS

MY PASSWORD

UNDER SETUP NEW ACCOUNT INCOMING MAIL SERVER:

COMCAST.NET

PORT ADDRESS: 110

USE SSL: OFF

ACCOUNT NAME: WORRYWART24-7

OUTGOING MAIL SERVER:

COMCAST.NET

PORT ADDRESS:25

USE SLL: OFF

USE SMPT: ON

It then goes to network request and I get the error #S7122

I don't know what to do. I looked up my port address on my comcast email on my PC and the numbers are the same.

Any help out there??

For comast people, if you are having send issues, I have optimum which is a cable company internet as well. I had the same issue and it was due to the ISP locking port 25 try changing the port to 587. Someone suggested under a different thread and that cleared the issue for me. Hope this helps.

The 2nd username is the same as the first one. For example, the first one should have doej@comcast.net, and the 2nd is doej & below the password.

Re: SETTING UP EMAIL...CAN ANYONE HELP??

I have a qwest email account and I am also having issues with setting up my instinct. I took it in to the sprint store and the techs were of no help. I use pop3.live.com with port 995 for my incoming server and smtp.live.com with port 25 for my outgoing server. I set both incoming and outgoing servers to SSL and set the smtp auth. to on (btw i've tried every combination of settings with the SSL & SMTP auth). I get the error message S7118 check your user name and password (which I am 100% certain is correct). Any help would be appreciated.
