I will try leaving the port for the smtp server blank & @ 0. I do not use the email account associated with my domain. I use an email address associated with Comcast. I also use Thunderbird and I simply used the settings that I used when I initiated my Comcast account in Thunderbird input into Universal Email. Was this an incorrect course action or do you think I will not be able to use an email address separate from what was established @ my domain ?
