email on xfinity site going to spam

Is there a way to keep emails from going to the spam folder on the xfinity site...marking something as "not spam" sends it to your inbox but only each one.  The last few days almost every email I get is going to the spam folder. Weird.

You can "whitelist" a sender by following the instructions in https://forums.xfinity.com/conversations/email/how-to-prevent-email-from-going-to-the-spam-folder/602dafffc5375f08cd1ec7b9.

 

Not for everyone: Turn off their spam filtering altogether so everything they deliver arrives in the Inbox.

Hello Reenler, it sounds like you may need to remove one of your spam filters. For more information on how to do this please see the information below. 

 

Xfinity Connect email lets you set spam blockers with a Comcast email spam filter.

Spam Filtering places emails designated as spam in a separate Spam folder.

  • You can check and see if any legitimate email was marked as spam by accident and use the toolbar to mark it Not Spam.
  • Emails marked as Spam and moved to the Spam folder will be deleted automatically after seven days.


Turning Spam Filtering off sends all emails directly into your inbox – even those designated as spam.

Follow the simple steps below to change your Comcast spam filter settings.

Somehow I doubt that will work but will give it a try...just like another poster the email alerting me to this went to the spam folder...now emails are not even coming to my outlook inbox...I just don't get why things changed all of a sudden.

Things changed all of a sudden [Edited: "Inflammatory"] It has been years that I received my utility bill by email until march 2021, when I discovered my bills were in the spam folder of the "xfinity connect" email app. They never made it to my email client on my PC!
