Hi there! I was wondering what the IMAP settings for comcast.net email settings would be, because I don't want to have to see the messages on my PC after I delete them on my phone.

As of now Comcast does not have IMAP. Hopefully in the future they will have it.

Does Comcast now have IMAP? I have tried with Comcast on phones for hours and just got a run around. Do you know, kindly advise. Thanks

Comcast does not offer IMAP email for residential customers at this time. They are testing it out with some people, but they have not given an estimate for when it will be available.

We're now making IMAP available via our Xfinity Connect Beta program. The URL for the registration site is https://xcbetasignup.comcast.net/ Once registered your account will be moved to our Beta platform and will be accessible via IMAP within 72 hours.

My account has been moved over.  What are the IMAP incoming and outgoing server settings for the new IMAP service?

 

Thanks

If I sign up for the IMAP Beta program, does it apply to all e mail addresses on the account, or just the one that is the user name?

IF you use Microsoft Outlook 2013 on Windows 8 to access your Comcast email POP3 account, this Microsoft article is crucial to make your mailto links work:

Did you register to IMap beta? If you haven't you cannot use IMAP with XfinityConnect.

The URL for the registration site is https://xcbetasignup.comcast.net/
Once registered your account will be moved to our Beta platform and will
be accessible via IMAP within 72 hours.
