Accessing Email directly in Outlook on desktop computer

How can I make my email account appear on my computer when I open Outlook?  I had my old computer set up this way, but then I got a new one, and now I have to go to the Xfinity website, log in, and view my email from there.  Having it open automatically in Outlook is much more convenient. Thanks!

If the settings in that link don't work try these:

 

Incoming server
Server type: IMAP
Server name: imap.email.comcast.net
Connection security: SSL/TLS
Server port: 993
 
Outgoing server
Server name: smtp.comcast.net
Connection security: SSL/TLS
Server port: 465
Authentication: As incoming mail server


I am not a Comcast employee; I am just a customer, volunteering my time to help other customers here in the Forums.
