Umm you actually need to call comcast on this, they have recently set
some new spam controls on some servers, and not on others.  Just
explain to them the situation and they should open this up for you.
I'm seeing this exact same error 10-20 times per day from customers
who think their McAfee VS is blocking the email.
Anyways, this error is coming from Comcast, trying to prevent you from
Spamming, just in case you're a bot.
