I am receiving emails;however, my out box is full. What do I do so I can send messages? The connection to the server has failed. Subject 'Re: .Re: Running', Account: 'mail.comcast.net', Server: 'smtp.comcast.net', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10060, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E
This is the error message I am receiving when I try to send. I do not know how to check the size. I was chatting with Belless, I am sorry, I do not remember the spelling of my expert. If it is possible to increase the size of emails I can send, I would also like to do that. Thanks.

Bineesh: I am so sorry, but I have clicked on everything I can think of to see a folder size, UNSUCCESSFULLY. Here is the error message: The connection to the server has failed. Subject 'Re: .Re: Running', Account: 'mail.comcast.net', Server: 'smtp.comcast.net', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10060, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E
I hope that helps. If there is a way to expand the size of emails I can send, that would be great. Judy

Bineesh: I guess I am missing something, I do not see a response from you? I have contacted comcast and now the messages are out of my out box. However, is there a setting so it does not matter how much I attached to an email? I am set up with "windows mail" which it is my understanding that it works with outlook? Judy

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
