    I am facing very strange problem and I have decided to discuss with you all and I hoping that you will tell me possible solution to overcome from this situation.

Its showing following error on the screen

    Well I think Comcast has been regularly blocking port 25 which you are using. Well I think its allowing port 587 which is used for outgoing. Incoming is handled by port 110. You should change the port with SMTP Port 587. You should check My Server Requires Authentication check box. You should try it and let me know whether it is working or not. I will be really happy if it working for you. Wish you all the best.

    Well I want to know whether you have enabled email scanning using your antivirus. Email scanning reduces the performance of sending and receiving of email message. So I am suggesting you to uninstall the antivirus program from your computer and reinstall the program in Custom Mode. You have to uncheck email scanning. Please try it I think this problem is caused due to antivirus settings.
