Move email address from one Comcast account to another...

I would like to move an email address from one of my Comcast accounts to another.  I stopped by the Comcast brick and mortar and they said they cannot help because of security issues.  How is this done?  Thank you, Bob

Re: Move email address from one Comcast account to another...

Can you clarify what you are trying to do?  Do you mean you want to move an external email address from a different email provider (like Yahoo or Gmail) to the mail-fetcher in a comcast email account?  Or do you mean you want to move a Comcast email address to a different service location?  Something else?

Re: Move email address from one Comcast account to another...

Good morning Latoque.  I have 2 Comcast accounts at separate physical locations.  I would like to move ex. 123abc@comcast.net form one of the Comcast accounts to the other Comcast account.  This is in preparation to move the whole service of one of the locations to my new home.  I've had the email address for 27 years and want to make sure I don't loose it.

You don't need to worry about losing it.  About three or four years ago, Comcast adopted a policy that lets you keep your email active even if you quit Comcast service entirely.   Basically you just need to sign into the email every 9 months.  See here for more information about that ---------------------------------

Latoque, that's excellent.  Is there a way though to move an account.  I don't have plans to get rid of Comcast I just would like to be primary on a different account so I can pay the bill.

I don't know if you can just move an account to another address.  I don't think so.  You would need to call Comcast and ask about that.  I also have two different service adddresses in two different states.  I have different email addresses/user ID&passwords for both.

Re: Move email address from one Comcast account to another...

Thanks again Latoque.  I'll have to call them.  The reason I know they can move email accounts to different Comcast accounts is because when I got service at the second location they moved my email address from my residence and made it Primary on the new one and created a really weird Primary account on my residence.  Not sure what the thinking was on that.
