Emails like this one are almost always phishing emails - attempts by scammers to steal information from you. I know of no new version of Comcast email.

 

If you check your email with Comcast's Xfinity Connect webmail (https://connect.xfinity.com/), look for the XFINITY Verified Email logo next to any message that claims to be from Comcast/Xfinity. See https://www.xfinity.com/support/articles/comcast-verified-email. If the logo is missing when you view the message in webmail, the message is not from Comcast.

Unfortunately, AFAIK the logo is not present when you view one of their messages in an email app or program, not even in Comcast's own email app. It's only visible when you use their web email site.

I dont think it is Ive been getting the same thing. Does yours show a gmail.com return address when you hold curser over the first part of message.?Mine does.  So I sent a message to that address and not a very nice one and they replyed with a very bad message. So I really don't think it came from comast. plus I was told by them that they are xfinity now and any emails they send will come from them. hope this helps.
