What is the purpose of having a comcast / xfinity email address?

New Poster

What is the purpose of having a comcast / xfinity email address?

I have logged into my comcast email for the first time ever and I noticed thousands of junk emails.  I have never used this email address.  It's unclear to me how this email got on so many junk email lists.  Does Comast sell this email address to advertisers?  What is the point?  What's the point of any of this?  I reviewed some of the emails and many of them appeared to be phishing anyway.  I probably wont venture into this inbox again.

Go into Advanced Settings and check to see if the spam filter is enabled. It should catch most spam.
