    Below is a copy of the error message I receive, my settings have not changed at all and they are the exact same when I am at work. I can send emails from work, just not from home.

    The connection to the server has failed. Account: 'XXXX', Server: 'smtp.XXXXXXXX.net', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): Yes, Socket Error: 10060, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E
    Anyone have a similar error? I am using Comcast at home and Verizon at work.

    Comcast told me each time I talked to them to use port 587 instead of 25, but when I do that, I get a different error.

    I had the same problem around 3 years ago, I can send e-mails from work and then when i brought my laptop from work to my home i wouldn't be able to send any e-mails.
    All this has to do with your outgoing mail (options). DO NOT change your incoming, and where it says outgoing type: smtp.comcast.net
    also do not change the ports. So, you have to use 2 outgoings, one when you are at work (with verizon) and another one when you are at home: smtp.comcast.net.
    Sorry but there is not only one outgoing, that would be perfect, but not everything is perfect.
    I hope it works for you,
