    Well Comcast have made some changes in their server settings and as yours is still on the older setting, you getting the error and sending is getting failed. They have actually changed the SMTP port to 587 from port 25.

    So you need to make these changes by going to Tools > Accounts > select that mail account > Properties > Advanced. Here change the port to 587. Now go to Servers Tab and check mark the box for “My server requires authentication”.

    Let me know if you get any more error.

    Hello Robert G, the solution for your problem is very simple. Just change the SMTP port to 587. Comcast should have told about this to their users before actually making the changes. Anyways, if you want you can get the complete new settings here:
