comcast imap on ipad

comcast imap on ipad

Hello

My brother has an ipad and I do not know what version or age it is. If it is relevant I can ask.

He does not know his Apple id or passowrd but again if necessry I can ask.

I have Googled and gotten a general idea but a lot of the links refer to phones or something not relevant.

How can he set up a Comcast imap account on it?

Thank you

Re: comcast imap on ipad

We've setup IMAP to be auto-discovered. You should be able to go through the email account setup, select "other" when it asks you to pick the email provider, and after you enter your ID and password the account should set itself up.

Hope this helps.

He will need to get his apple ID and password first thing.  See this link:

To set up Comcast Username and password:

On the iPad, click on Settings

Click on Mail (on left side) Fill in all areas.

The steps to set up with his comcast username and password:
