Can't retrieve comcast email on xfinity

I am having trouble receiving Comcast email in Outlook. I have 3 Comcast email addresses - the main account address and 2 additional email addresses. I successfully added 1 Comcast email to my Xfinity account and can now view emails for 2 addresses through my Xfinity account - the main account and the one just added. However, the 3rd email address - the one I am having trouble with in Outlook - will not set up in my Xfinity account. The error message in my Xfinity account says:

The entered credential or authentication information does not work or are no longer accepted by provider. Please change them.

Please advise.

I'm sorry to hear you're still having trouble connecting your email address to your Xfinity account @user_jle3cg. Have you by any chance tried resetting the password on that particular email?

I need assistance resetting the password on that particular email account without changing the password to my entire Xfinity account. All other email accounts including 2 comcast email addresses are working fine in Outlook.

It did not work. I reset the Xfinity password and changed it in the email settings in Outlook and on my Xfinity account. The error message on my Xfinity account still says:

The entered credential or authentication information does not work or are no longer accepted by provider. Please change them.

No change - I cannot get email through Outlook or on my Xfinity account.
