Email accounts in EL Capitan

Email accounts in EL Capitan

When I upgraded to El Capitan my Email accounts became unusable. The settings were still there but wrong ones in wrong places. Ok I cleaned them out and am starting over. On the 2,3 pages where the setup is accomnpolished  what do I enter and which line? I want imap NO POP.

 

Incoming server ? Outoing server ? TLS Cer, port ? Authentication ?, SSL ? The examples using the pages from EL Captian are the best. I make the normal asumptions and I get the inbox and it shows 4 or so email's that have come to the box but when I click on them zip nothing there. Also in the mailbox folders most of the Comcast emails are gone?

Comcast is my second mail box. I use Gmail, Comcast, iCloud. I dont want icloud first but the other two can be first or second either.I don’t want icloud first but the other two can be first or second either. It does matter as when you write mail the E-app adds the iCloud name if it is first

I haven't moved up to El Capitan yet myself.  Is Mail any different than it is in Yosemite?

Make sure you updated to 10.11.1 released on 10/21/15 which has several email fixes included.
