    VBSENDMAIL - works great except with Comcast

    I have VBSENDMAIL embedded in a VB 6.0 application.
    It works great with all WIFI spots and ISPs except my home ISP (comcast).
    With my home ISP, I get the following error.

    Your attempt to send mail failed for the following reason(s):
    The attempt to connect timed out

    What could be unique with Comcast ISP that could cause this error.

    In some areas, Comcast blocks port 25 to discourage spammers. Contact Comcast to see what port they are using for SMTP.
