deleting e mail from comcast through outlook

deleting e mail from comcast through outlook

 

 

I am using Outlook 2013 for my e-mail account.  It downloads all my e-mails and I manage them through outlook.  I delete messages but when I go directly to the Comcast web-mail site, the messages remain in my inbox.

 

Is there an Outlook setting or a web-mail setting I can use to connect the two programs in order to delete e-mails in both places?

Re: deleting e mail from comcast through outlook

To do what you want re-create the account in Outlook with the same user ID and password, but using the IMAP protocol.  That way everything will be synced and if you delete a message in one place it will be deleted every place.  The settings are here-----------------
