Adding comcast email to Lenovo laptop

Re: Adding comcast email to Lenovo laptop

Are you using the Windows Mail app that comes with 8.1?  If so that's why you are getting that message.  That app supports only IMAP compliant accounts, which Comcast is now.  Were you trying to set it up using POP settings?  If you want to use POP3 you'll need to use a different client like Windows Live Mail or Mozilla Thunderbird.
