MAPI email system

Regular Visitor

MAPI email system

My Comcast email will not allow me to attach a file which is about 22MB zipped. Therefore I would like to use WinZip "Zip and Share" to send this file. However WinZip's service works only with the MAPI system.

How can I get Comcast to convert my email to MAPI

Re: MAPI email system

Are you using only the Xfinity webmail portal?  Or are you using an email client like Outlook or Thunderbird?  I think you mean IMAP---not MAPI?  There is no MAPI I ever heard of.  IMAP would be a protocol to use in a client program.  If you are indeed using a client, here are the settings you need to use IMAP-----------------

You can't get Comcast to convert your email to MAPI. Ain't gonna happen. MAPI isn't really an email protocol, it's a Microsoft thingy. It allows you to send stuff via email from within an application on your computer. It's not going to help you send a "too large" file, though. And, 22 MB is *not* too large. What *exactly* was the error message you saw when you attached that 22 MB file.
