How to get email from all my Comcast email addresses using new webmail system?

How to get email from all my Comcast email addresses using new webmail system?

I have six Comcast.net email addresses, but the new webmail system will ONLY show me email from the main account! How do I access my other email addresses' inboxes using the new webmail system?

Re: How to get email from all my Comcast email addresses using new webmail system?

At some point you will be able to enable all your Comcast accounts just as you would external email accounts from other providers.  However, that feature has not yet been enabled in the new email format.  So your best bet right now would be to enable them in a desktop email client like MS Outlook, Mozilla Thunderbird, Mac Mail or some other.

Re: How to get email from all my Comcast email addresses using new webmail system?

Thanks for letting me know that isn't possible yet - you've saved me a lot of time!

 

Just FYI, I've been using Thunderbird for a very long time, and usually it easily accomodates all 6 of my comcast email addresses. It's just that I ran into a problem recently in which Thunderbird failed to get my more recent emails, so the only way to read them was using webmail. I just solved that problem by updating to Thunderbird v52...

I use Mac Mail------my desktop is an older iMac.  The old email format in Comcast has the capability to fetch mail from external accounts, but it has been trouble-prone on it's best days.  Other webmail providers offer the same capability, like Yahoo, Outlook.com and Gmail.  However, they all limit the number of accounts you can set up in them, so that gets to be problematic too.  I'll be really interested to see how it goes in the new Comast format.  In the old one there is no limit that I know of as to how many you can add.
