Can more than one email account exist for the same email address?

Hello, is Comcast able to tell if more than one email account exists for the same email address. I identified a few people that appear to be using my email address. I believe Comcast somehow allowed them to creat the accounts. I don’t think they did it maliciously. The email address that's being used has been my personal email address for over 15 years. I keep getting emails from legitimate businesses that are addressed to names other than mine. Thanks for any information provided.

Do you mean someone is using your address to send emails?  If so, hover your mouse pointer over the From address in the header.  Do you see any other address?

 

But you can call Comcast security and ask them if it's possible.

Yes, someone is using my address to send emails?  When I use the mouse pointer and hover over the From address in the header I see my address. The person that sent the email never gets the responses, but I wonder how many that might be getting through using my address. Thanks for the quick response.
