Comcast email with Outlook 365

Is it possible to use my comcast email account with Outlook 365?  In the Add Email Address page I select Other Account.  I select IMAP (the only other option is ActiveSync) and I enter my comcast credentials.  I get an immediate error telling me it was "Unable to Connect". 

 

Do I have to get the Installed version of Office (i.e. Outlook)?

Same probelm with outlook web app.  Comcast has an option to import mail, but not export. Username and password are verified correct.  Outlook says that comcast dose not support IMAP.  Cannot find info for incoming and outgoing mail servers on comcast.  Could someone at least post the servers please?

 

Thank you

Incoming server is Mail.comcast.net
Outgoing server is SMTP.comcast.net

If you switch to using IMAP, once your registration is confirmed, your settings would be:
Incoming server: IMAP.comcast.net
Outgoing: SMTP.comcast net
INCOMING Port is 993 with SSL ON
Outgoing port is 465 with SSL ON

Thank goodness for that last user reply.  If not, I would not have been able to repair my account settings inside the Outlook 365 email client.

 

But.....what was meant by "once your registration is confirmed"?

 

One of my Comcast accounts shows Account Type as IMAP (and that is dimmed and can't be changed), and another shows as being POP (and is dimmed).  The email on that latter one is sending & receiving, but all the port settings are old.

 

I'd like to get it switched over to the new settings, but how do I get the registration confirmed?

 

Thanks, and sorry if I'm a bit lost.  Not a computer expert but I understand most stuff after asking some dumb questions.

I was trying to figure this out as well...If you search this under IMAP, it will walk will show you how to register.
