    I just bought a new HP-pavilion to use for my TS-850S and other shack duty's. But having problems getting my mail to work, have tried all the steps. email address is loaded but will not SYNC ? I have tried in outlook and MSN, will send mail in outlook, with an outlook address, but will not receive any mail. Have looked on YouTube and tried there fix but same as I have done. Any suggestions on setup for mail before I load other ham related software. This is frustrating and somewhat embarrassing, 73

    What the standard default is. I did go to the appts section and disabled all but mail same thing. Did the recommended auto fix when the popup showed. Nothing. My email is comcast if that makes a difference. It appears I from searching I am not the only comcast with problems. Still learning my way around this system.

    If it's any help, I use T-bird on Win 10 with a verizon.net address, with no problem. You may have the wrong "numbers" in your configuration to work with Comcast.

    I get better support here, and do not have to be on hold. Pretty much worked out from the help I got.

    My assumption is you're trying to use Windows 10's built in email app. Don't do that. It is crap. It makes Outlook Express look wonderful in comparison. Either use a web-based mail reader, or any one of the better freeware (or inexpensive) email clients. Me? I'm on Gmail and just use the website on the PC. I do use my iPhone's email app with it. Windows 10 Mail app? No way. ;)

    Cool that you have it working.

    Your ISP just uses a different SSL port# than default, For security reasons.

    Enjoy.
