Outlook 2013 set up for Comcast Email

I am running Windows 8.1 and using Outlook 2013 for my emails. I had no problem connecting my hotmail acct to outlook, but cannot get my Comcast emails to show up in Outlook. Assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I am having problems with my emails also. I got a new computer with windows 8 and was able to get my emails on Comcast website up until this weekend when my inbox cleared out and now I can't get my emails at all. I tried to set up my comcast address on outlook but it will not work.

Did you try the pop3 or imap settings?  I found that pop3 version works. You have to contact comcast directly first  if you want imap email.

 

For pop3:

 

Incoming Mail Server - Name: mail.comcast.net

  • Incoming Mail Server - Port Number: 995 (POP3 With SSL)  (not 993 which is for IMAP)

same smtp for outgoing server. smtp.comcast.net 

  1. Enter 587 in the Outgoing server (SMTP): field.
  2. Select TLS from the drop-down box for Use the following type of encrypted connection

otherwise, call comcast support.
