Comcast has some of their corporate mailservers in their own dynamic address
range, I believe.

Given the length of time Comcast let computers on their networks spew spam,
viruses, and other crap all over the 'net, it's not just mail that's
blocked; their netspace is null-routed in a lot of places.

I realize Comcast's cluelessness isn't your fault, I'm just explaining.
