Re: Login failed on secondary email account

Reset the password for the secondary account.

1. Go to http://www.comcast.net
2. Log in using the primary username
3. Click on the arrow to the right of "Service Center" then click on Account Management
4. Select "Edit/View Settings for Secondary Accounts".

On the next page you'll be able to change the password for any username on the account.

Re: Login failed on secondary email account

Please get yourself a Forum Name to go by


To fix your issue with " login failed ", and you are positive you have the correct password, make sure you turn off ALL your email programs totally.

If your email client program is running and set to check the server every 10-40 seconds or so, it will not authenticate you when you try to login to the website.

GOOD LUCK !!!!

Go to www.comcast.net
Click on Account Management link ( under service center )
Click on Change Password option.
See if you have Multiple account listings here to change passwords on.



Oh, and thx for choosing a Forum Name.

Re: Login failed on secondary email account

OK I finally got access to my second account. I am using Netscape and I will only recieve emails at my comcast mailbox when Netscape mail is off. Is this normal? This did not happen when I was using Outlook express

Re: Login failed on secondary email account

Check on how frequently Netscape Mail checks the server for new mail. If it's to frequent, it could cause login problems.
