Re: Can I configure Xfinity email to search for emails frequently, every 30 seconds or so?

Comcast email has only the manual mail fetching ability---in the toolbar, it looks like two arrows chasing each other in a circle to refresh the page.  If you want any automatic setting in place beyond whatever the default is, you would need to enable the account in a desktop email client like Outlook, Mac Mail, Thunderbird or some other.
