Windows Mail not downloading

Windows Mail not downloading

For some reason since the migration I am no longer able to download mail to my windows 10 mail app. and it's spotty on my iphone

I am able to get it thru the browser though. If this is a setup issue could someone post directions? 

 

This is very inconveinent and I'm starting to lose trust.

 

Thanks

Re: Windows Mail not downloading

Thanks for getting back to me 

 

I'm using IMAP

Windows mail says it signed in. and when I refresh it it says syncing and hold on but it just times out and nothing comes across.

I have deleted it and set it up again no luck, It works on the web and my apple devices

Connection security: SSL/TLS

Thanks,receiving emails again in the Inbox only but I can live with that.

Official Employee

Re: Windows Mail not downloading

Please be advised that the correct setting for IMAP connections is imap.comcast.net.

 

While imap.email.comcast.net will work at the moment, it is not an official setting and will become unavailable in the future. Once that is removed it will cause issues for anyone using this setting.

 

The correct settings for IMAP can be found here How do I manually set up IMAP?
