Not receiving comcast email.

Regular Visitor

Not receiving comcast email.

My incoming email has stopped working entirely both on my mobile device and desktop. Contacts have told me they have sent me emails but I have not replied because they were never received.  I have checked my Spam and there is nothing there.

Re: Not receiving comcast email.

Try sending yourself a test email from some other, non-Comcast email account you have like Gmail or Yahoo, etc.  Does it get through OK?

Re: Not receiving comcast email.

I'm currently having this problem now. This has been happening for the past 3 months. It is corrected the following day. Then there is a sync problem between my iPad and note 8. I have checked all recommended settings.

Re: Not receiving comcast email.

This is happening to all of comcast email accounts (main and subaccounts). Started happening late last night (2/10/18) and is continuing to happen today.

 

Outlook appears to "send" emails fine, but does not "receive" emails to any of my accounts. Sometimes I get a "timeout" error and other times an "expunged" error.

 

I can login to the webportal and it shows mail in my "inbox" but when I try to open/preview any of them, the portal just hangs.

 

Frustrating as heck.

Re: Not receiving comcast email.

I've had issues on and over for a good year now - has been worse lately - esp last week or so...

same thing - people say they send them but I never receive them - had hubby send a test about an hour ago - still nothing, on my cell, laptop with Win livemail, and a few thru comcast.net I can't even see anything in the body of email... very frustrating - sent an important one last week and it took 2 days to get there - is comcast using USPS now to deliver??? Smiley Sad  Also tried sending myself a test from my comcast.net page - and notta - altho a test from my yahoo account came through in about 5 min...?

Sadly my friends with Verizon don't seem to have this issue...

Re: Not receiving comcast email.

My email started working an hour after this pot. Guess what it's not working again. I see headers but not the complete email.

I am having the same issue. I sent an email at 2:00PM yesterday that arrived at 9:30PM last night. Does anyone have an answer?

My computer is getting email, but can’t get it on my phone.

Re: Not receiving comcast email.

Are you using only the webmail on the phone with a browser?  Or are you using whatever mail app that came on it?  Or maybe you are using the Xfinity Connect Mobile app?  What happens if you send yourself a test email?  When you say you can see the emails "on the computer" are you using only the browser and webmail UI?  Or a desktop client like Outlook or Thunderbird?
