Re: Emails

You need to use IMAP for the mail client.   that way when you delte it from one it will dissapear from all.

Re: Emails

To use IMAP:


Change your settings to the following settings.


Incoming server: IMAP.comcast.net

Outgoing server: SMTP.comcast.net:

Incoming Port: 993 with SSL  checked

Outgoing Port: 465 with SSL checked

Under the server tab:  this server requires Authentication must be checked

Do NOT check SPA ( secure password authentication)
