Email on Android Phone over Xfinity WiFi

Email on Android Phone over Xfinity WiFi

Wanted to reach out to see if anyone is having problems getting their email with an Android Phone over Xfinity WiFi.  I have a Motorola Turbo and the problem started about 4 months ago.  When I toggle out of WiFi and go to 4G, I have no problem.  It's only when I try to connect through Xfinity WiFi, only Xfinity WiFi and no other WiFi.  I cannot get mail through the Xfinity Connect App or the Email Client that came with the phone (recently converted from POP to IMAP and it didn't make a difference).  I saw some postings on other forums that there is a disconnect between Lollipop and Xfinity, that the two are incompatible, causing a problem only when using Xfinity WiFi.  Recently upgraded to 6.0.1 Marshmallow, and made no difference.  Also saw some forums that said Xfinity did something with their gateways, causing a compatibility problem.  It's not the device, as I recently replaced it, thinking it was. 


My wife has no problems with her IPHONE nor do I have any problems with a 5 year old Lenovo Android tablet, nor do I have any problems with my Windows 10 PC.  I guess I'm going to have to decide whether to move to an IPHONE or switch providers if I can't learn to live with this, unless someone can point me to a solution or has anything to offer that might be able to help.
