    Hello,

    What a cool little gizmo we have !

    only one thing...I can't seem to SEND emails from
    my comcast.net account. The mailboxes imported
    just fine, and I can receive email, but no sending.

    I get the error message....
    CANNOT SEND EMAIL
    the sender address XXXXX@comcast.net
    was rejected by the server.

    How do I fix this ?

    THANKS !

    Comcast does something lame, like not let you use their outgoing server for mail programs. I remember talking to them about something when I set up my mac mail and they wouldn't help. I use gmail though so I just ended up using theirs. Hopefully they've changed their terrible stance on that by now.

    I have never been able to send emails with Road Runner webmail on my iBook. I asked them about it one time and got some kind of techie answer I can't explain but that basically it was not possible -- something about the ip you are on with the WiFi not being recognized or something so like above I ahve to use gmail to send from the road.

    Was expecting the same with the iPhone IF IF IF IF I ever get activated........ 35 hrs and counting

    I am not using webmail. The settings for my roadrunner e-mails were automatically added to my phone when I sync'ed for the time. With the exception of about 3 hours yesterday, I have been able to send a receive messages without a hitch

    I just tried it. The first time, the "send" progress bar wouldn't budge, but a second try worked perfectly. However, the Hotmail account I sent the test message to received two copies.

    my two fixes are to either send them via safari or create a new email address both of which work sorry it can't help out your current situation though

    Thanks for all of the input....

    After messing with this email for a while I can only
    refer to it as "intermittent" or "iffy".

    I had a test email in my comcast outbox that would not send
    yesterday, when I woke up this morning it was still in my outbox.
    Then, inexplicably it sent at some point this morning. So I tried
    to send several emails on my iPhone using my comcast account.
    I few of them actually sent, but most of them just disappeared
    into never-never-land....darnit. They don't appear in my outbox
    or in my sent messages.

    Not good....I really use theses 3 comcast accounts a lot.

    And now......out of the blue......I am sending email like a bandit !

    Works perfectly, after I hit send, I get the swooosh, jet take off.

    Quite an amazing age, where these situation magically resolve.

    I did not do ANYTHING different.

    Kind of scary actually.....:mad:

    Is it against the law to quote myself ?

    Forget everything I said above, today
    my comcast emails won't send, what a drag.

    Mine is working now..

    Here is what I know, don't take this as gospel
    because I'm no expert.....

    Apparently when iPhone imported my comcast mailboxes
    it did not auto populate the proper OUTGOING mail servers,

    I had to go in and manually add the host name
    smtp.comcast.net

    And add the user name....which is the complete
    email address for the main mailbox account,
    I had to add that main email for all 3 of my
    comcast mailboxes

    Also add the password

    Its working now and has been for 2 days.

    adding the password and user name (full email) to the outgoing server settings fixed the issues...problem solved. Thanks.
