Cannot connect iphone 5s with ios 8.4.1 to comcast mail account

Cannot connect iphone 5s with ios 8.4.1 to comcast mail account

My phone was restored and I cannot access my comcast email on with the mail icon.  I tried to set it up just like my wife's iphone, but it continues to try to set it up as an imap.  I do not want it as an imap.  I want it as a pop account with mail.comcast.net.  it continues to tell me I cannot get mail. 

 

I do not want all my devices to sync.  I use my computer to keep all my mail as I file important emails which I would delete from my mobile devices. 

 

Please help
