Re: Email To does not see all Address Book entries

I just did an experiment with this issue two days ago;  I tried entering a new contact using both the Full and the Lite versions of XC.  When I started typing the contact in the To: field of a new email, it didn't show up, in the Full version.  It seems that the auto-fill feature is not available in the Lite version at all.  (Hey, that's why it's called Lite ya know )   However, about 24 hours later it just started working.  The contact showed up the next morning when I began typing it in.  So maybe there is just a 24 hour time delay for it to kick in?


Of note:  If I manually type an email address into the To: field (Full version only), and then actually send the email, the auto-fill feature will remember it the next time I start typing it in---even if it's not in the address book.


Comcast has the oddest setup in this regard.  I don't know of any other webmail provider that does this.

Under Preferences> Email> switch from the Full version to the Lite version.  Make the changes there.  Post back if that works or not.

Email To does not see all Address Book entries

I have added new contacts to the Address Book and created a new group.  I have also deleted some contacts from the Address Book.


When I compose a new email, the new additions to the Address Book, including the new group, are not options in the list that appears when I click on "To".  In addition, the deleleted contacts are still in the list.


I restarted Safari and re-logged in to Xfinity email, with the same result.  In addition, I have restarted my computer - same result encountered.
