Can't Get into My email

I can signon to my Comcast account and see that I have X many emails available but when I click on the go into my email, nothing happens.  I can't get that or voicemail to open.  This is the first time this has happened to me.  What is going on?

Re: Can't Get into My email

What browser(s) does this happen on?  Does it happen on other browsers or computers?

I am having the same problem as the original poster SusanJaye.  I read my email this morning & turned off my computer.  When I turned it on later, the email preview page opens, but when I try to get to the mail, the page does not load.

 

Xfinity lite  internet mail

Vista 32-bit

IE 9 (cache emptied)

 

I just noticed Windows update installed a cumulative security update for IE 9.  I don't know what changes that may have made.

 

I downloaded & intstalled Firefox & Xfinity mail is working in Firefox.

Re: Can't Get into My email

I am having the same problem.  I can see that I have emails, but when I try to open up the email page, all I get is the page loading but never opens up.  I have done nothing with my computer, nor have I installed anything, this just started happening yesterday.  I cannot even open up the comcast live chat page to ask them what is going on?

Call 1800 Comcast. The error saying you need high speed Internet indicates a problem with your Account that a Comcast Rep can fix.

Re: Can't Get into My email

Cherokee- This is swell know issue that Comcastis aware of but no fix yet. You can try the following: Clear your cache, reset your browser to the default settings, or try a different browser. If you must get to your email, try using the www.m.comcast.net site. It is a very basic email, but you should be able to get to your email.

Re: Can't Get into My email

This is happening to me  now too.  I can see my inbox, see that I have emails, but when I try to get into the inbox I'm just asked to log in again via another window.  Log in, new window to log in again, over and over.  Can't get in!

 

that m.comcast.net site won't come up at all for me, so that's not a solution.  Smiley Sad

I am using IE 9.0.8.112

I'm on a netbook with that scaled down version of windows.  I don't use any other emails with it.  And yes, I deleted all cookies, etc.

Firefox is working, for now, but this is really unacceptable.

Re: Can't Get into My email

I have been having this same problem off and on for about 3 weeks.  The email preview will be available but when I go to the inbox, it will not open.  Usually by the next day it will work right.  I called once and was told there were some "upgrades" being done that might be the cause.  I am pretty annoyed with it and am considering a change from Comcast.

This has been an on going issue that Comcast is aware of and working on fixes.

Do try all of these:

 

Clear browser cache  ( which browser/version do you use too please?)

Reset your browser to the default settings 9Save Favs & Bookmarks first)

Try a different browser

 

If you are using the Full version, switch to the Lite version of XfinityConnect:

(TO do:  Open XC and click on Preferencxes> General.  If the Full version is checked, check the Lite version.  Close and re-open XC.  You should now be in the Lite version.  Can you access your email with the Lite version?

 

Post back.

Re: Can't Get into My email

Do you realize how long it has been since I reported this problem?  When I called in about the problem, I was told it was probably due to upgrades that were going on to the system and it should clear up over time.  I thought that was probably just an excuse, however the problem seems to have resolved itself, so that must have been the problem.  Thank you.

Re: Can't Get into My email

I am having this problem as well. I sign in to comcast/xfinity, and see that I have new messages. But when I click the inbox, I get directed to the "Access requires Comcast High-Speed Internet" page.

 

I have tried using the m.comcast.net link but get the same problem.

I have tried using different browsers. (Explorer, Chrome)

I have tried clicking on "preferences," and it brings me to the "access requiers high-speed internet" page.

 

This is a serious problem, and it seems many people have had the same issue! We rely on our email and need to be able to access it.

Have you called Comcast?  It seems to me that after everything you have tried there must be something going on with your actual account.

Re: Can't Get into My email

I tried everything listed here first EXCEPT calling comcast... Turns out that was all I needed to do. After a quick phone call, (well maybe not exactly quick... Got bounced around a couple times) they were able to remove a block on my email account. Everything is working now.

 

Anyone else finding this post from a google search like I did... Just call 800-COMCAST and they can fix it. Assuming you are in their database as the primary account member, that is.

This appears to be a common problem with comcast email. I am a new xfinity customer and this is disturbing.
