    Before Comcast bought out AT&T's broadband I could send and receive email from a Comcast.net account on my Treo 270 using SSL and Eudora.

    Now that Comcast has taken over I'm working to get my 270's mail working with the same Comcast.net account. I've changed to Snappermail from Eudora for feature reasons, but believe I'd not be successful with Eudora either.

    I CAN receive mail from Snappermail through the Comcast account but not send. I read a hint on the lame Comcast forum that there is a limitation with the SMTP portion of the service.

    Anyone had success with Comcast accounts and Snappermail via Treo?

    Thanks,
    Tim

    Timboyd,

    Many of the "good" ISPs actually restrict "relaying" using their SMTP servers in order to restrict helping out the folks who seem to think SPAM is cool. Meaning, they restrict use of their SMTP servers to only people who are on the COMCAST network.

    So while this creates a "challenge" for you getting to do what you want to do, it actually helps us all out because they aren't helping the SPAMloosers.

    So what you need to do is find a domain or something that will allow you to relay your SMTP traffic through them. You might be able to get a cheap web hosting account somewhere that will allow you to do it -- or check with any "web devs" you know to see if they know of a server you can use to relay your SMTP traffic!!

    Hope this info helps!

    I use comcast.net and Snappermail with no problem. You are using GPRS, no?

    Felipe, thanks for the FAQ link to Snappermail. Funny, I'd not looked up there yet. I must be losing it. Normally I'd look to vendor support sites first.

    1. I'll go up on Cingular support and see if I can use their SMTP server for sending. Thanks for the hint.

    2. I DID just get the mail I sent at 10:00 a.m. in my office email at 2:00p.m. --- Hmmmm, long time running around the net, but MAYBE it has something to do with the worm stuff we're all wrestling with. -- Btw, standard SMTP outgoing server per Comcast.net

    Thanks for the replies guys,

    Hey Tim,

    We meet again

    I've had no problems with Comcast and SM.

    In SM under server info:
    POP3 Server: mail.comcast.net
    SMTP Server: smtp.comcast.net

    That's it!

    Hey millerhifi,

    Good running across you too. I've seen you pass the ATTBI stuff along from time to time. Good to keep the chain going.

    Thanks for the Comcast.net stuff. That's what I've got configured, but it takes HOURS to send mail through Comcast even though I can send mail to them within a minute.

    I'm hoping it's something to do with the worm.

    How's your Cingular service in the Southland these days? Mine here in San Jose is spotty as always.

    The Cingular service has been very good for me throughout SoCal. There is always those few dead spots. I just don't make a call when I know I'm approaching those areas

    I've just sent mail from my 270 via Snappermail to my both Yahoo and another Comcast.net account. Both messages arrived within a minute.

    I'm putting my money on 'The Worm' for previous tardyness

    I'm satisfied with Comcast.net mail via Snappermail now.

    Thanks to all who replied.
