My Comcast email account has been slowing down over the past week or so, keeps sending me error messages like this one - Error
The connection to remote server imap.email.comcast.net timed out while awaiting the response. My typing speed has been too fast for the keyboard to show what I am typing on screen (and I am not a speed demon typist).
What is going on with Comcast email service? It has deteriorated significantly recently.
I'm having the same problem. Composing email is interupted by the same message. I'm not sure if my email is sent because the only folder I can access is my inbox. All other folders won't load.
Another frustrating situation from Comcast.
Early this morning I was able to call up emails. Now I can't; spinning wheel. I haven't received any emails in almost three hours. In New Jersey.
Count me in also. I thought it was an Outlook problem, but signing right onto the Xfinity connect mailbox is yielding the spinning weel and the "imap.email.comcast.net timed out while awaiting the response." message. There are similar comments on isitdownrightnow website. Annoying to say the least!
So I guess the next question is, does Comcast look at these forums to try and resolve issues that are obviously affecting many users?
You pose a very important question. In the meantime, we're paying for a service that doesn't work.
I just tried using Chrome to access my Comcast Email. I can view all my folders and contents with Chrome. I can also send email.
I don't know if I'm missing emails sent to me at this time.
However, sending emails and loading folders is SLOW.
No Inbox Received email coming in, no Sent emails going out.
Customers calling me annoyed at non-response from me, but thank goodness they did or I would not have known Comcast email was not working at all today.
I deleted cookies/temp, I rebooted, I reset modem, I tried a different browser... nothing works.
Long wait on Help chat, phone help still on hold.
I am totally unable to access my email accounts! After very slow sign-in the page sits at an open calendar (which I never use) and when click on email I continue to get error messages. Cannot even get pushed through "comcast.login" on browser.
With all these documented issues where are you Comcast?? We need assistance.....
Rep just told me they expect this to be resolve within... ready???... 24 business hours! (Her comprehension of the language was terrible and I think she meant 24 hours, not 24 business hours. Either way... WHAT?!?!?) Oh, and we can't check outage alerts on the web. We have to download the app for that.
Alerts are an easy, quick way to manage your account and get information - like payment confirmations and your current balance.
