Web mail client - how to send email from a specified email address (not my comcast email)

Most mail clients allow you to configure them to send email from a specified email other than the one that is used to recieve the email.  Is this possible in the xfinity connect web mail client?

Actually, through perseverance, I made it work.  I created a new account with the email I wanted to send from and then used the comcast ingoing and outgoing parameters for the mail server - works great!  Now I can send from the email that I have forwarded to my comcast email and keep my comcast email privateSmiley Happy

No.  You will need to use an email client like Thunderbird, etc in order to do this.
