Email using Mac Mail Version 10.0 (3226)


I recently purchased a new Mac to replace my 6 year old mac. 

Setup my Comcast email using Mac's Mail just like my old computer. 

My email account  is used by many devices and no single device should control the emails.

All emails should operate as POP on all devices.

THey had operated this way, until I installed new Mac with this Mac Mail Version 10.0 (3226).  

When I put my email account on this new MAC, there was no option for POP (which I didn't realize untill I started deleteing emails and my husband was missing emails that he needed but they of course were the ones I didn't need.)


I changed the IMAP setting to POP settings.  Email will not connect.

I called Appple Support.  We deleted the COmcast account, added back, Auomatically adds back as IMAP.  Made changes per the Xfinity website for POP3.  But email will not recognize those settings.


Please help.
