If you ever decide to drop service you can keep your Comcast email address.  See here--------------------

Re: Emails never arriving

I'm thinking the same thing. It's obvious Comcast had a huge server problem yesterday affecting the email system. This is happening way too often. FIOS was making some pretty good offers. Seriously considering switching.

Re: Emails never arriving

Hello All -- We had a national issue with our email platform yesterday. This has now been resolved. We are currently dealing with some residual fallout from this issue. We appreciate your patience while we get this fully resolved.

Re: Emails never arriving

yea, I've read you can keep your comcast email even if you do not have Comcast services, but what's the point when that's what I have been having with is Email - not the actual internet service...

Does this include restore missing email in folders?  I'm missing like 10 years worth of email.

Re: Emails never arriving

Same issue here.

 

No old emails in one of my email accounts.  Missing probably 5 or 6 years of emails now.

 

Happened after the big meltdown earlier last week.

Sarah, when I try to Private Message you I get a Private Message page but no options to actually send a message.  It looks like there are Javascript errors preventing the page from loading.  I sent an DM to @ComcastCares on Twitter.  I'm hoping this will be sent to the appropriate people to help me.

Re: Emails never arriving

Hi gutter2424! Thanks for letting me know you ran into troubles. We can certainly help via Twitter. However, I would also recommend trying another browser if you are running into an error with the private message feature. We're here to help!

Re: Emails never arriving

I have the same issue.  After email service was restored, all my past emails are gone and the only message in my inbox was a 'Welcome to Xfinity Connect email'.  It's like they wiped my account and started over.  Someone please help.  No one on the phone has been able to help, and have not offered any solutions. Please just restore my email contents to before the outage so I can get my emails back.

Re: New xfinity email lost all my folders

Scroll to the bottom of the list of emails and in the left hand corner there should be in pale gray and arrow and the words show folders.  Click on it.

Re: New xfinity email lost all my folders

It seems that Xfinity Connect won't open because the loading takes forever!  When will the issue be fixed? Cat Sad

Re: New Xfinity Webmail / FAIL

No.  Rejected.  I did not request a complete email overhaul or to be part of some new product or program roll out.  My small business is not a game, neither is the past 10 years of my email.  I want the previous email program back immediately.

Re: New Xfinity Webmail / FAIL

The font is too small, the borders are not clear, I can not easily visually search through the top page data anymore.  Need much larger font sizing for the one lines describing the specific email with rotating grey background and lines in between emails for more comprehensive readability.   Give me the previous email appearance back immediately.  The change is unwelcome and not appreciated.  The color change is unnecessary, this is a work email, I want black and white like I enjoyed for the 10 years prior.  I want the control bar back on the left side full time permanently, I spend a great deal of time working emails and can not suddenly be blind to incoming email while I'm busy writing detailed technical emails, and lack of this puts too much white on the screen.  I want the control bar to jump to drafts, inbox, or sent with one single click, and to always have the ability to see instantly how many new emails hit real time.  There is so much white on the screen it's blinding and the cool easy to view tones are gone.  Whomever designed this must not spend much time on a desktop pc.  Now will have to use a different browser with downsized window just to use exclusively for email so I don't have to constantly change the browser window sizing to deal with the excess white on screen.  This is not accepted, not appreciated, and I want the legacy view back.  No time to deal with the next unwelcome unrequested Comcast Xfinity 'upgrade'.  It's a downgrade, less appeal, reduced readability, reduced awareness of inbound emails if busy in other emails, forced color spectrum.  Where is the move to button for easy sorting back to inbox and out of spam or delete, in the case of accidental delete click.  The email was the last reason I stayed a customer all these years, give it back the way it was and please do not change it.

Re: New XFINITY e mail is horrible

The font is so small in the top view sections where one reviews all the inbound or outbound emails, I can't read it.  I'm not sitting on a jumbotron at my living room desk.  No more borders in between emails for easy readability, so much white on the screen.  Just an all around unwelcome change and as usual for Xfinity these days, a fail.  Try hiring Americans.

Re: NEW Service offered by Comcast/Xfinity

Exactly, I'm not sure I can even use this.  The font is so small.  This may be the end.  Wasted efforts, why don't they just let the customer control all those visual items.  Waste of my time.  Working late and suddenly; new email settings forced without any permission.  Brilliant strategy.  Make people who deal in mass emails difficult to read, remove rotating tones and seperation lines.  Brilliant.  Now I'm supposed to stare at this Zimbra happy face cartoon logo all day in the upper corner?  10 year olds have apparently taken over Comcast email.
