Quick Links > Reset Password

This does not work. It resets the Xfinity account password but does NOT reset the comcast.net email password. Emails will still not download with this 'fix'. I tried it multiple times.


What does work is getting a customer service person to go into the broken account and reset the password by typing in the password you want.
