Loaded Comcast email to my iPhone 8. Only loaded some emails.

ANSWERED
Frequent Visitor

Loaded Comcast email to my iPhone 8. Only loaded some emails.

Installed my Comcast email account to my iPhone 8. Works fine but many of my inbox emails are missing (yet still on Comcast.com)
How do I get the remainder of my inbox over to my iPhone?

If you let the phone auto-configure the account, it should be using IMAP.  That being the case, anything you see in the webmail interface should also be showing in the phone's Inbox folder.  Did you manually set the phone to use POP3?
