    darn i was hoping that they may have been able to help
    has anyone tried a different email application - I guess if you auto forward to another mail app that would work

    Although I do not use comcast yet for email as ATTBI has not converted their email over yet, I've been told that 2banywhere's email client works very well for comcast retrieval. I use it now for my ATTBI account. It's a service type email client like treomail but much better and it's free until they launch the full program (still in beta).

    so how would I configure 2banywhere to recive comcast (cable service ISP) mail

    I have a Treo300 with vision

    So what would I put in for mail server, port number, encryption?

    any help would be appreciated

    You follow the set up instructions w/your user name and password for your comcast acct and you need to set up pop3 and smtp servers:

    pop3: mail.comcast.net
    smtp: smtp.comcast.net

    and there is no SSL authentication required.

    ok so I plugged in POP3 acount details ok but where would I put in the smtp details?

    I have already installed the software and the only options that I can see on the treo in acount details are POP3 or IMAP4

    man am I "puter" ileterate

    You should have been able to input all of this information on your desktop while you were going thru the set up process before syncing your treo.
    If you have already installed the app, from the pulldown menu under options, accounts, you can create a new account from there and insert both pop3 and smtp server info then you can simply delete the one you already have set up that is not right.
    Does this make sense?

    Thanks!!!

    I set up a new user but it still not give me the option to add smpt details but it turns out they were not needed....

    I actaully had plugged in the wrong user name so that might have explained why I was getting bumped out-duh

    works a charm now - seems real fast will try an attachment now

    I better stop finding new ways to use this device otherwise I going to get fired for playing with this thing!!!

    You will need to add the @sprintpcs.com

    password: secret
    server: mail.sprintmail.com

    are you sure you don't want mail.sprintpcs.com?

    authetification: none
    pop3
    reply email adress: myname01@sprintpcs.com
