Still no resolution to our missing emails and folders?

Still no resolution to our missing emails and folders?

I have seen several posts about missing e-mails and I am also missing many old e-mails and all my stored folders. Has anything been/being tried to recover these? Can someone from comcast get us an update? Anyone hear anything different besides what I was told that there was nothing the help center could do, they are all gone?

They may well be recoverable.  I'm escalating this to the forum admins for follow-up.  You should see a reply in this thread.

We have had the same problem with one of our email accounts.  All emails older than 1 week have disappeared as of 3/20/18.  Anything older than 3/15/18 is no longer available.  If anyone has a suggestion please help!!

Re: Still no resolution to our missing emails and folders?

I have been having issues with Comcast email on my mobile for a month now. It will not sync and states the server is down. The same with outgoing emails. This was happening every day for over a month, but now it has not synced in 3 days. I have been able to get my emails directly from the website, but I need them updated on my mobile. I was in the Xfinity store a month ago on other business and the employee tried to change the settings and so forth. It did not work. I closed the account on my phone and then set it back up and still it does not work. How can we fix this?

What kind of phone is it?  What mail app are you trying to use?

It is an LG G6 and it is the standard email app.

Re: Still no resolution to our missing emails and folders?

Are you able to sync the email using another device like a tablet, or with a desktop client like Outlook or Thunderbird on a desktop or laptop computer?  Try downloading the Xfinity Connect Mobile app and see if it works with that as a test.

Re: Still no resolution to our missing emails and folders?

As of this morning I was able to connect with my Comcast email on my LG G6.  So far it looks like it is updating properly.  I did not do anything other than cancel the account and enter the account again.  Until this morning, it continued to say the server was unavailable.
