New and Improved version of Comcast e-mail?

New and Improved version of Comcast e-mail?

I posted a while back expressing my frustration with the antiquated, bug-ridden Comcast e-mail program.  I said that I'd reported a number of issues to Comcast and that none of them had been resolved.  A forum member responded that Comcast had updated the e-mail program and was rolling it out in stages.  Does anyone know the status of that? 

 

I'm about to move to gmail but, as Comcast well knows and exploits, it's a pain to move to a new e-mail address and to get everything transitioned.

 

Thanks for any info.

Yes, there is a new format being rolled out.  Right  now it's still kind of in beta mode, and only some people have it.  The latest information I've seen is that this process will continue on into next year.  So there is no knowing when you might get it.  New internet customers are getting it by default.  Here is what the new Inbox page looks like----------------------

Did you know that in your Gmail account, you can set up an external account like Comcast and use it from the Gmail interface?  You can even send with the Comcast address if you want to.  Or you could enable the account in a desktop client like Outlook or Thunderbird.

Thanks for the info and suggestion about using the gmail or Outlook clients.  I've been holding off trying that but Comcast has worn me down with the poor quality of e-mail version I have so I'll look into it.

 

I appreciate your help.
