Print from Android phone?

I am trying to print e-mail from my Comcast e-mail account on my Android, which I bought from Comcast, using my wireless ("Brother") printer.  The only information I can find on the Internet is to hit the 3 dots at the top right of the screen on an e-mail.  Ain't no such animal.  I can print Comcast e-mail from my desktop just fine, this is a mobile phone issue.  And when I go to any site on my phone, there also is no option to print, it's not just my e-mail, apparently.  Any suggestions?  TIA

How are you accessing your email from your phone, Xfinity Connect mobile app or browser?  On my moto z4 phone, the Xfinity Connect app doesn't have any option for printing an email.  If I open a browser on my phone (Chrome) and go to https://my.xfinity.com , log in to my email account, I can select an email and hit the three dot icon in the upper right of the browser and select 'Share' which has a 'Print' option.

I see the same in the Xfinity Connect app (no dots and no print option). A few things to consider, in addition to accessing your email through your browser as suggested:

  1. I do have a print option in my Gmail app, and I have my Gmail account set to include all of my Comcast email, so I would be able to  print from that. If you already have a Gmail account and use the app, you can add your Comcast account and even filter messages so that Gmail automatically labels those that came through that account. 
  2. With my Epson printer, I have an option to create an email address for remote printing -- any email sent to this email address prints immediately rather than landing in an inbox. I don't know if this is an option with your Brother printer but it may beworth exploring. However, this would also introduce the forwarding header into each email.
  3. Outside of email, I have an option to print in many apps using the Share menu and sharing to the Epson iPrint app to print directly (without the forwarding). There may be a similar app for Brother. I do not see a sharing option in the Connect app, though.
  4. If this is something you do frequently, you might even consider switching to a different app for email.
