    My solution was to ditch Comcast email and use Gmail.

    Did you set up your outgoing mail server settings? You can can find the appropriate settings on comcast's website, but here's how mine are set up

    Host: smtp.comcast.net
    Use SLL: ON
    Authentication: Password
    Server Port: 587

    Yes I was having the same problem and the server port that works from my phone is 995. For some reason when I was using port 587 or port 25 it would not allow me to send emails from that particular cable account. So port 995 works for me

    Ditto on that. The best part is that Comcast will supposedly be updating this app to include the functionality of setting your DVR while on the go.
