Comcast email folders disappeared

Comcast email folders disappeared

So I created a few folders last month on the web Comcast email. They've disappeared. There is no 'show folders' button and the dropdown doesn't toggle them back. They are missing.

Re: Comcast email folders disappeared

So here's the answer: After we created the folder in Comcast.net email, let's just call it 'Default' for now, and we saw that it worked...we deleted the original 'Default' in our Outlook 2007.

 

iMap killed the original and then went and killed the Comcast.net one.

 

Lesson: If you're going to use Comcast.net as your folder saver...you can't delete the same named folder anywhere hooked up via IMAP.

Re: Comcast email folders disappeared

Do you mean all folders are gone, or just the ones you created?  To the left of "My folders", you should see a small black arrowhead.  Click on that and see if the missing folders appear.

Just the ones I created. Arrowhead only toggles Junk Mail folder.

Then I will escalate this to the forum admins for follow-up and see if the folders can be recovered.

BobsBlitz, that's right. POP3 is an older server but works well if you want to be computer specific.
