linking email accounts

linking email accounts

I have three email accounts I use. The primary and two secondary.  One of my secondary accounts feeds into the primary when I open it.  I like that.  The other secondary account does not feed into the primary account when I open it.  I would like it to do that instead of going out of comcast and then going back in.  I can't find a way to do that.

Re: linking email accounts

Hello j-borgschatz, unfortunately we do not have the account linking function anymore due to it causing issues when trying to transfer accounts from one address to another. What you can do is create a like username for each account (Comcast1, Comcast2, Comcast3) and then you can use the same password for each account. This will make is simple and easy for you to sign in.

I feel obligated to say something here.  What you are describing is a form of "daisy-chaining".  If one of the poster's accounts were to be compromised, then all of them would be compromised since all would have the same password.  If the poster wants to get emails from the secondaries in the primary account, the best way would be to set them to auto-forward to it IMO.
