Windows 8.1 and Email ICON APP

Hello

 

Can someone please tell me how to receive my comcast.net email using the windows 8.1 email icon app?  Hopefully, I'm explaining that correctly.

Re: Windows 8.1 and Email ICON APP

The tile you are referring to is the shortcut on the desktop that takes you to Windows Mail, the email client supplied with Windows 8.1  Tap the tile to get into the app, then swipe in from the right to the left to get to "Settings".  Tap that and then on "Accounts", then "Add an account".  Then tap "Other Account".  Then check IMAP.  You will get the screen to start filling in your email address and password.  If you want to see the configuration tap on "Show more details" at the bottom of that page.

 

Windows Mail will auto-configure the account as being IMAP compliant.  You cannot use POP3 in the app.
