Re: is this email legit

It's almost certainly a phishing email, an attempt to steal login and account information.

Please see Comcast Email Phish or Legit? How to Tell (and rules for posting) for more information about identifying, reporting, and posting phishing emails.

Samples of recent phishing messages can be found at http://constantguard.comcast.net/alerts under "Top Phishing Scams".

I should add that i have 6 email accounts and this email only came in on one of them.

usualy comcast would send an email like this to all my accounts.
