Is Comcast IMAP or POP? for receiving Email Setting Server?

Either.  I use POP for mine in Thunderbird, but you can use IMAP as well.

 

You can find the current email settings here, including client settings.

Re: Setting Up Email Program Mozilla Thunderbird/Is Comcast IMAP or POP

It turned out for Comcast it is POP3 but the more rooted reason I was unable to receive email after setting up Thunderbird email program is I have two identities and one needs to use the dominate one with the server as priority and there should be no problem receiving email. One is still able to set up a secondary email address and receive email. When checking for email just click on Get All Email Messages as opposed to using only Get Email Messages.

 

Hope this is helpful for anyone who comes across the same problem I had. It took over 7 hours for me to have a Eureka moment to solve this problem. - jk
