    Does anyone else use Comcast for email and know how to get the settings to set it up on the iPhone?

    with Comcast, you might have to use port 25 on the smtp to get your emails through both wifi and edge. If you use just wifi, you don't need port 25. But to access Comcast's email server through edge it has to use port 25.

    smtp.comcast.net:25 is the correct setting.

    It's what I use and have used since day one.

    Ya, some people have luck with standards. I didn't. It may have to do with locale, and the server settings for different customers.

    can't send mail

    can receive mail on my new iPhone, but get msg: "cannot send mail; sender's address is invalid." think using this Port 25 would fix that ... or?

    Thanks for any help!
