Comcast email settings for setup

How to set up Comcast email

To set up your email into a smart phone or tablet many times you will find that simply entering your user name and PW is not enough.  Many times advanced settings will get the job done.  Below I provide Incoming / Outgoing server specifications along with Port numbers.

    Comcast email is weird. I set it up & some mail comes in & when I go to check it, it goes away never to be seen again. Can’t figure it out. I don’t want to call as it is a painful experience.

    I appreciate your time to connect with me regarding the error (lack of reliable email) from your mobile device. May I ask if you are using an Android device, if so which model / manufacture. Also are you using the pre loaded email client, (by client I am refer to the “icon” that permits various email access)?

    My new Galaxy S5 will download emails from Comcast but after anywhere from 1 to 5 seconds later they all disappear. Works the same on every email client I have tried—Samsung, Xfinity, Hangouts, Gmail, myMail. Anybody have any suggestions?

    I love the phone but this wipes out 1/3 of what I need to use it for. Very frustrating.

    I have spent the whole day trying to connect my Comcast email to my Samsung smartphone and cannot do it. What could be wrong?s

    There are a couple methods to register the comcast email account. Are you utilizing the native (mail) from the phone settings? Or have downloaded the XFINITY Connect app from the Google Play store?
