Re: Comcast email on Surface Pro

On the Mac, are you using an email client like Mac Mail or Thunderbird?  If so, do you have it set up to use POP3?  Because if you are, by default POP will download the emails to the computer and then delete them from the server.  Then when you check your email on the Surface it has nothing to "see", if you are using IMAP with the Mail app that comes in Windows 8.1 or 10.

Comcast email on Surface Pro

Why is my Comcast email disappearing from my Surface Pro (but not my IMac PC)? How can I retrieve the deleted sent mail?
