Deleting email across platforms

Deleting email across platforms

Is there a way to delete email from laptop, phone and tablet simultaneously? My gmail account does that, but I haven't found a way to do it with the comcast account.

Re: Deleting email across platforms

The Comcast account needs to be set up on each device using the IMAP protocol.  Once that is done, everything will be synced, and if you delete an email on one device/computer, it will be reflected on all of them.  The settings for IMAP are found here---------------------

But most devices now will detect the Comcast account as IMAP compliant and auto-configure it for you.  So maybe you need to just re-do the account in each one?
