Attachments no longer downloading from Comcast email via Gmail app on Android (Marshmallow)

Around the time the new Xfinity Connect webmail rolled out, I was no longer able to download attachments (even tiny ones) on my Comcast email using the Gmail app on Android (Marshmallow). I have the same problem using the Android Chrome app to access the new Xfinity Connect webmail. In both cases I receive the email and see the attachments, but when I command a download nothing happens. Previously I was able to sucessfully download Comcast email attachments using either the Gmail app or the old Xfinity webmail on an Android phone.


I have no problems sending and receiving email on my Comcast account through the Gmail app. and I can send email attachments fine on my Comcast account using either the Gmail app or Xfinity Connect. Just can't download received attachments.Can Comcast fix this?


My curent workaround is to forward the email to my Gmail account and use the Gmail app to download the attachment. I can download attachments fine on my Gmail account using the Android Gmail app.
