changing a pop3 email a/c to imap

How do I change my pop3 email a/c to an imap a/c? Can it be done seamlessly and retain the original email 'name'?

Re: changing a pop3 email a/c to imap

Go to your email settings and change them to:

Incoming server: IMAP.comcast.net
Incoming Port to 993 withbSSL a on
Outgoing port 465 with SSLON on
Thus server requires authentication must be checked

Do NOT checkbSPA (secure password authentication )

thanks for that information.

If I do these changes, will that allow me to delete an email on one device and it will delete that email across multiple devices? If not how do I do that with a Comcast email a/c?
