closing comcast account & email address

If I close my comcast account, will I lose my comcast email address?

Re: closing comcast account & email address

Yes.  As with most ISPs, Comcast email is proprietary.  Once you are no longer a paying subscriber the email will no longer be accessable to you.  So you need to migrate your email and contacts to another free-standing email account like Yahoo, Outlook.com, Gmail or something else that is not dependant on an ISP.  If you already have an account with a different ISP, they should have a way to transfer your email to their service from Comcast, as well as your contacts.  But you would need to do that before you close the Comcast account.
