As Entourage is not an Apple product and I get the impressions not a lot of people around here use it, I think your issues can be more quickly resolved by asking in Microsoft's Office:Mac forums here:
They are very helpful and employees of MS's Mac Busines Unit commonly help there.
Be sure to include which version of Office Mac you have when posting there. I think your choices that include Entourage are:
<> Office X
<> Office 2004
<> Office 2008
Ofifce 2008 is the highest version that will run on an PowerPC Mac like your G5.

Thanks, I finally figured it out. I was changing the port of the wrong user. When I signed up for Comcast apparently the default user was not me , oops. So, when I change the port for that user, viola! The emails began to fly!

I'm having exact problem you 1st posted about (mac, entourage, comcast, can recieve not send mail). I see you figured it out-I'm not tech savvy so I have no idea how to change the port or what that even means : "when I change the port for that user, viola! The emails began to fly!". I am also not the default comcast user...
would appreciate any help you can offer.

Open your entourage, open account settings, click on the main user. When you see the account setting pane then click on the receiving drop down menu. You'll see a port number. try 110. Ditto for sending. Try port 465. That might do it.

the choices in advanced settings for both receiving & sending include "override default (POP & smtp, respectively) port". I see 110 there for recieving, though not checked/chosen; I changed sending to 465 & checked/chose it, but no change.

Check with your Comcast rep, they may be using a different port config. Ask them for the numbers. Thats what I did, I was just trying the wrong USER at first. IF you have multiple suers make sure you are working on the settings for the DEFAULT user.
