Comcast is notorious for having spammers on their network. I just had an
idea that could profit from Comcast users; it likely already exists as a
service, but... What about an SMTP relay service for folks like you that
have problems sending email because of your ISP?
Indeed, there are many companies/products that block emails based on the
Dynamic IP address ranges. Most don't block, however, unless your IP is
the sending IP. Using your ISP's relay should keep you safe, however,
there are some places that block even the second level.

Get a real ISP. :-)

Yep, as simple as that:
