Hello @sallijames,
thank you for reaching out to us. Let' work on a fix and find out what's causing this.


We recommend that you follow the steps below:

(1) Check if your email account is configured as POP or IMAP. If it is set up as POP, you may want to switch to IMAP. 

(2) Ensure that you have entered the correct server settings for your Comcast email account. 

 Also, please feel free to check Email server settings here!

We hope this information is helpful and thanks for reaching out to AT&T Community Forums!

I believe what you are having an issue with is gaining access to the Comcast mail servers while you are connected to the AT&T network.  If this is not the case, please clarify.  Assuming the above...

When you are on the Comcast network, you don't normally have to authenticate to send e-mail.  I would think you should still have to set it up your e-mail and password to receive e-mail, but maybe it just defaults based on your connection as well.  In any case, Comcast doesn't know who you are coming from the AT&T network, so you'll have to provide proper authentication information.  Check with Comcast for proper values for connecting to the comcast mail servers when not on the Comcast network.
