Error while loading message content

Error while loading message content

I see where there was a series of posts about this problem on 9/19/16

"Error while loading message content. Folder Draft (Inbox, etc.) has been closed on mail server IMAP.email.comcast.net.

Probably your request took too long."

I can't open any email whether in the INBOX or DRAFT, etc.

I was in the process of editing a draft and I can't complete.

Can someone advise what to do?

I rebooted the laptop severasl times.

 

Thanks

Email Error Messages

I see some other posts, I am recieving an error message when attempting to open emails:

 

Error while loading message content

Folder "INBOX" has been closed on mail server imap.email.comcast.net. Probably your request took too long.
 
Happened a  few weeks ago also, C'mon Comcast, what the "bleep" is going on!  We pay for these email accounts! Gmail doesnt have these issues and its FREE!

Try clearing out your browser's cache/browsing history. When you have done that, close out the browser and re-start it in a fresh session.

If that doesn't do it, then try using a different browser and see if you can duplicate the problem that way.

Re: Error while loading message content

I was away from my computer for 3 hours. When I came back I can now open emails and edit the draft.

Error message is gone.

Thanks to all who replied previously.
