Re: Setting Comcast as Default Email account Wind 8.1

OK I have a Dell laptop with 8.1 on it.  As near as I can tell, the Mail app will use the email account address you use to sign in to the computer with.  It's intended to use your Microsoft account, if you have one.  Now this is just a guess on my part------set up your computer to use the Comcast email address as the sign in credentials, and that should be the default email address you send from when you click on a "mail-to" link.  I can't find any setting in the Windows  Mail 8.1 app that lets you set any account as the default sending address.

 

When you send it will use whatever account you are looking at that you have set up in it.
