Why do I have to use Comcast as my SMTP?

I own my own domain and use it for email. So, up until today, my SMTP in Microsoft Outlook has been set to "email.bradnelson.com" and worked like a charm. All of a sudden today, I couldn't send any emails from ANY of my email accounts in Outlook (personal and work). Turns out, I have to change my SMTP to smtp.comcast.net in order to send any emails.
Why do I have to do this? I don't really like the idea. What difference does this make?
