Trying to add my work email account to my PC so I can get them directly without going to the work portal.  I have multiple email accounts on my iPad that are not comcast i.e. google.  Can I do the same on my PC?

Certainly.  You just need to enable the accounts in a desktop email client like Outlook, Mozilla Thunderbird, Windows Live Mail or some other.  That way you have all your email in front of you and it keeps you signed into the accounts.  Thunderbird and Windows Live Mail are free downloads.  Outlook comes as part of the MS Office suite of programs if you have it.  And there are others.  If you have a Gmail or Outlook.com account, they both have the ability to send and recieve using external accounts, although they are limited to like 3 or 5 accounts.  Mail.com has a similar capability.  The new format in Comcast is supposed to have it, but it's not available yet.

 

Here is the download for Thunderbird if you're interested------------

On my PC. Is it possible to have more than one e-mail server on my PC?
