I just replaced XP with Win 7 hope Premium 64. This means I have lost Outlook Express. I have been trying to set up Comcast Business email with Windows live or even Thunderbird and had no luck. I used the online instructions for each. I retyped everything several times and retried. I called Comcast support and had them double check everything. I have had 2 different people check. I keep getting a message that the Server refused with Live Mail and that the username or password was wrong with Thunderbird. The password and username open the Comcast account and email without a problem so I know they are right. Is there a known problem with Comcast and email? I am not using port 25. I have used the correct ones. Help please!
Here is the message

Never did get either of them to work. nobody knows why. I did a lot of research and it ought to work. I really don't like the Comcast Business email software at all.
