I have WinXP Pro and use MS Outlook 2003 for composing , sending, and
receivin e-mail.

I also have Comcast cable and want to compare Verizon DSL with Comcast.

No problem getting to the Internet with Verizon, no problem receiving mail,
no problem sending mail, all with Verizon DSL.

BUT - when I receive a message and want to forward it, it always wants to go
to Comcast and says it cannot find the server Comcast.

This is very misterious since

1. I have set Verizon as the Default

2. I have Comcast cable modem unplugged at this time.

Now , when I go and copy, then paste that same message and send it to the
same people as those to whom I wanted to forward it to, all works. But that
is a lot of extra steps and should not be necessary.

I tried it also in Outlook Express 6.x and again all works, except Forward.

How do I fix this?

What SMTP server are you using? Comcast probably will not let you relay the
message through them when you are disconnected from their network is my
first thought when you describe your problems. Also consider that when you
connect to one or the other - your DNS entries are different.
