I absolutely cannot get my computer to send emails. I normally use Thunderbird and im not sure when it stopped sending since i dont usually send much. It says that the message sent but I've tried sending to several people and it never works. I also used outlook and had the same problem. It connects and sends but doesn't arrive. I am able to send them from logging on to the comcast server and sending them from there. I have tried disabling McAfee's email protection but that doesnt help. Any ideas?

Thanks

My guess would be that your outgoing server (SMTP) isn't setup correctly.

Look in tools>account settings>server settings SMTP. For Comcast it should read smtp.comcast.net

THIS is a step by step guide for verifying your settings in Thunderbird for use with Comcast. :whistling:
