adding an e-mail account

adding an e-mail account

When I add an e-mail account do I need a new comcast account for that account? I want two different e-mail accounts on my Mac, one of those on one iPhone and both of those on another iPhone. Do I need a Comcast account for each e-mail account?

No, you can add a SECONDARY username.  Sign in with your a Primary username and password, then click on MybAccount.

  Next click on tge Usersvand Settings tab.  A new window opens showing your Primaryband any other Secondarybusernames associated with your account.  On tge far right, you see ADD A USER.  Click there and follow the directions to create a Secondary Username and password.
