Re: Windows 10 Emails

I had the same issue. I had used my comcast e-mail account name to log into Windows 8 and then 10. The Windows 10 mail linked the Comcast account to a Outlook account. To fix, I went into Windows 10 mail, clicked on settings (icon in bottom of leftmost window), selected Accounts (in new pop-up window), selected the Comcast e-mail account, then edited the account to deselect everything and turn the e-mail switch to off. After a restart, I was able to receive all the spam in my Comcast account.

Accessing Xfinity Email with Windows 10 Edge Browser

I have installed the new Microsoft Windows 10 Operating System and their new Edge browser.  I have no problems accessing my Xfinity email account using Firefox (ver. 39.03), or Internet Explorer (ver. 11) within Windows 10.  When I try to use the Edge Browser to access Xfinity email, however, I constantly get the following message - "Your browser's cookie functionality is turned off. Please turn it on."

 

The problem is that the Edge Browser is set to accept all cookies and I have cleared the cookie cache.  I can use the Edge Browser to access other email accounts such as Google, but not Xfinity's.

Exporting Xfinity email to Windows 8/10 Outlook

I've had Dell; Microsoft and Comcast, whom are still working on importing my email from Xfinity/Comcast email to Windows 10 Outlook.... They've all wasted hours of my time trying to merge the two OS... my Comcast email uses POP3.... Windows 10 uses IMAP... Xfinity is capable of IMAP but I can't switch from POP3 to IMAP from Windows 10. Comcast Account on Xfinity doesn't allow access to those setup settings.... at least I haven't found anyone who knows how to do it... Comcast told me to contact Microsoft... they're still working on it. I've contacted Dell, they couldn't do it and told me to contact Microsoft.... does anyone have any idea how solve this problem??? This is what I'm prompted: The IMAP email server name and/or port number you've entered contains one or more errors. Please correct and try again. I've tried imap.comcast.net.... I've tried pop3.comcast.net.... I've tried various ports... to no avail.

Can't connect Windows 10 email client to Comcast email via IMAP

Can't connect Windows 10 email client to Comcast (Xfinity) email via IMAP.  Claims there is nothing to show in terms of new mail and it's "working on it . . ."  Not sure what the proper setting should be.  Tried auto & manual set up choices.  Using Edge as a browser if that's important.

 

Looking for help to get the mail client working.  I am able to use the Xfinity webmail option but prefer the desktop client to consolidate my email accounts.

Email Expert

Re: Can't connect Windows 10 email client to Comcast email via IMAP

Until Comcast and Microsoft get themselves sorted out, try using either Chrome or Firefox.  I understand there are some updates from Microsoft already that will help this.  I don't have 10 myself yet.

Windows 10 Email not loading

Running new Windows 10 with Microsoft Edge browser.

XFINITY Connect emails not loading for primary Comcast account (URL: web.mail.comcast.net/zimbra/mail?app=mail); secondary account loads OK in Windows 10 and Edge (URL: web.mail.comcast.net/zimbra/mail?app=mail#1).

To load my Comcast primary account emails I change the Edge settings to use Internet Explorer (v 11) and the primary email account loads OK.

Also running CG XFINITY Norton Security Suite V22.5.2.15

Scc1905

I keep getting scc1905 when I try to send an e-mail  --- I do receive e-mails I just loaded Windows 10

Prettybaby,

SCC1905 is typically due to an invalid email address, such as having too many <'s or a comma instead of a period.  This error isn't related to Windows 10, so you'll want to check that the recipient email addresses are correct.

 

I hope that helps.

Re: Exporting Xfinity email to Windows 8/10 Outlook

I have found out very painfully several things about Outlook setup. I downloaded and installed windows 10. My video was not right. After two days of chat and phone help, I found out that most computers over three years old will crash due to their video driver. Both ASIS and E-machines told me my computer could not take windows 10. my machine is just over three years old. well, when I removed windows 10 it scrambled outlook.  Sorry for the long blurb.

     The solution for your problem is that you can't make the setup changes to an existing account. You need to click the button to add a new account. Then it will pop up with the choices you are hunting for. Once you set up the new account remove the old account. Can't have two identically named accounts. Hope this helps.

 

Regular Visitor

Re: Comcast e-mail and Windows 10

I had that happen. It means that your video driver needs updated. If you are lucky your computer manufactor will have the updated driver. If not you will have to go back to which ever windows version you were using. Unfortunately, your outlook settings will be messed up. You need to remove your e-mail account and then add it back in as a new one.

Re: Scc1905

SC1905 is a relatively well documented error, which I'll be honest and say I thought we reworded it to be more friendly.  It means there's an illegal character somewhere in the email address.  Do you get the same error if you manually type the email address?

Windows 10 and Comcast Email

After installing Windows 10 Comcast mail will not connect.  You'll get a blue dot that spins forever.

Apparently there's a problem with Windows Edge. As a temporary fix install Google Chrome and your email will work again. Microsoft is aware of the problem and is or has issued a Windows Update which should solve the problem.  What's intersting is if you call Comcast for help the customer service reps are not aware of the problem and will tell you to call Microsoft. I asked to be transferred to higher level Comcast Support and spoke to a person who was familiar with the problem and told me to install Google Chrome for Comcast Email. The lower level Comcast support reps (contractors) don't have access to the Comcast Forum.  If they did they would be aware of the problem.

Agreed, Chrome and Firefox work well.  In addition, as I mentioned above if you run a Windows Update after the Windows 10 upgrade it will install an update that fixes the compatibility issues. 

Our testers have confirmed this and I'm using Windows 10/Edge to check my Comcast email, personally.

Having e-mail trouble since installing Windows 10

Ever since I installed Windows 10, I've been unable to access my e-mail.  Is Comcast e-mail compatible with Windows 10???

New Poster

Re: Comcast e-mail and Windows 10

Bought new Dell w/ Win 10 installed have set default home to comcast but have no email! Have even set up Firefox as secondary as Edge will not work for many things. It's nearly a useless browser not being supported yet by virtually every main company. Microsoft didn't do much planning here. TV, Net works fine for other Comcast things just not Email, at least for me. Really rather P.O. as it's my default for Gov't accts. badly needed. I can send stuff to them from other browsers but can't receive anything in reply. What's up Comcast? I have to go change some 15 hi priority accts. Please fix this issue!!!!!!!!!

I have the same problem.  I maintain 3 browsers on my PC because of issues with Windows IE 11 in the past.  I checked Chrome, Firefox, Edge, and IE 11 and the only one that did not access mail was the Edge browser. I would recommend Firefox as your default browser until someone finds a fix for this problem.

If you upgraded to Windows10, any other browser will still be installed on your device...   If you did not have one, try installing CHROME and this should give you back access to online email.

Windows 10 email issues using new mail app.

I installed Windows 10 on my HP 110 Desktop and when I tried to open my main Comcast email on the Mail app, all I get is a constant message saying, "Your email account settings are out-of-date." It gives me the option to "fix" or "dismiss". When I click on "fix", it asks me to enter my password, which I do. However, all it does is say it is syncing and then "still working on it". It never syncs and continues to ask me to enter my email. I have two other Comcast email addresses that I use for hobby and music interactions. These two addresses work perfectly and synced without any trouble. I have no problem with my main account on Windows 8.1, only since I upgraded to Windows 10. Can someone PLEASE help me resolve this.
