ads in e-mail

I get ads on the right side of my e-mail. I can not delete I've tried to opt out, opt in and deleting but these error messages keep coming up. I can not delete my e-mails, trash them, or spam them or forward them. These options are no longer there. There is an un and something else in font of each line. This is the first time in weeks I've been able to check my e-mail because of XFINITY maintenance or internet explorer stop working.

Re: ads in e-mail

All ISPs use advertising for the revenue stream. You do have some control over what ads you see. Underneath any ad on the right side of the screen, click on "Ad Info". Or just go to this link-------------

http://xfinity.comcast.net/adinformation/

That will explain how you can opt out of some, but not all advertising. Or-----use a browser add-on called "AdBlock Plus". That will eliminate all of them. An even better option would be to use an email client like Mozilla Thunderbird or Windows Live Mail. That way you don't even have to look at the Comcast UI, and no ads.
