Re: email issue

What you are describing is the new normal in the Appsuite email software.  AFAIK there is no way to change it.

You have a number of options-----------------

 

1)  Enable the account in a desktop email client like Outlook, Thunderbird, Windows Mail (Windows 10) or some other.  That way you can access your account and don't have to look at the Comcast UI.  There are a lot of other advantages using a client over only webmail anyway.

 

2)  Set the account to auto-forward to some other, non-Comcast, account you have like Outlook.com, Gmail, Yahoo, Mail.com, etc.

 

3)  Some webmail providers now give you the ability to set up external accounts and use their interface.  Notable examples would be Gmail, Outlook.com, and Mail.com.  Comcast webmail will have this feature at some point in the new format too.
