Question:

Question: Sending emails from comcast.net. I can receive emails to this account, but not send. What to do?

I have two email addresses on my Mac, my iPad, and my iPhone. My gmail account is my primary email on all three devices, but I also have a second one through Comcast set up on all three devices. I have no problem sending and/or receiving emails from my gmail, and I can receive emails from my Comcast account, but I can't send anything from the Comcast account. How to fix??

It is likely caused by Comcast making some change and not telling you about it


If you can’t send or receive emails on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch - Apple Support


Often, deleting the account - if it is SMTP (likely), everything is on the server at Comcast, merely mirrored on your devices - then adding it back again will solve many problems

[most modern email clients will "know" or "ask the server" for the correct settings when you add an account]
