  5. Either set up a new account or correct the settings in your existing mail account
    in Windows Mail such that the settings agree with:

    http://www.comcast.com/Customers/FAQ/FaqDetails.ashx?Id=2288

    If after making those changes you still get an error message,
    right-click on your error message, copy, then paste it into a reply here.

  8. "SMTP" is not a valid name for your mail server.
    You must obtain the correct server names from your mail provider.
    If that is Comcast, see
