Short answers:
- Try port 587.  It may already work at the SMTP server.
- Try port 587 at Comcast's SMTP server.
- Leave the laptops configured like this all the time.  May not
  need to switch back and forth at home vs. work.

Long answer:


Hopefully, Comcast is better about their business-class accounts.

Chiming in...

On Verizon DSL (consumer) I just configured exim to authenticate to an use outgoing.verizon.net

I just figured that I "should" configure that way since I have no email boxes locally (I use verizon's and gmail).
