IE (Explorer) 11 settings for Comcast Email

Comcast seems to change its Email setup too often. I log in to a XFINITY account, then right click the mail icon @upper right to open a email window (skipping the my.xfinity.com news page). To log into Comcast Email (as of today) this is what I find works for IE (Explorer) 11 (on windows 7) [after setting things the safest possible]: @Security Tab, (pick) Trusted sites (click) Custom Level 1. •enable: Run ActiveX Controls 2. •enable: Script ActiveX marked safe for Scripting (2B enable run antimalware swon ActiveX - sounds like a good idea) 3. •enable: Active Scripting (near bottom). (click) Sites button [to set Trusted sites], add https://*.comcast.com +*.Comcast.net. You may need *.xfinity.com cdnjs.cloudflare.com cdn.jsdelivr.net ajax.googleapis.com +also http://yui.yahooapis.com http://ajax.googleapis.com http://prefs.connect.comcast.net for some Comcast tabs or pages. ...It takes too long to figure out what the minimal set is for the scripts they are using today. •Note logging out of the email window sends IE to the my.xfinity.com news page - an annoying feature. You may want to block •cookies from demdex.net tidaltv.com - for full cookie list see xfinity.com/Corporate/legal/privacystatement_chart.html
