I'm using Outlook Express while away from my normal network connection at
work. I hve a wireless connection made at the hotel, but all I can do is
receive email. I et the following error message. Please note that I was
logged on to get email.

There was a problem logging onto your mail server. Your Password was
rejected. Account: 'mail.comcast.net', Server: 'mail.comcast.net', Protocol:
POP3, Server Response: '-ERR user password must be specified', Port: 110,
Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 0x800CCC90, Error Number: 0x800CCC92

Any ideas?

Thanks!

This is from the Microsoft Knowledge Base, however, you might want to try an

It's because you are not using Comcast to connect with. You need to
configure OE to use the smtp server of the ISP that the Hotel is using.
Most ISP's will let you receive, but not send if you are not directly
connected to them. Either do as I mentioned above, or send your mail via
the web interface of Comcast.
