New internet design

I do not like Comcast and Apple changing designs, adding complicated features that many of us don't want and don't need.

Thought it was time for another opinion.


Re: New internet design

You have options if you don't want to use the Comcast webmail interface:

1) Enable the account in a desktop email client like Outlook, Thunderbird, Windows Mail (Windows 10) or some other. That way you can access your account and don't have to look at the Comcast UI. There are a lot of other advantages using a client over only webmail anyway.

2) Set the account to auto-forward to some other, non-Comcast, account you have like, Gmail, Yahoo, or some other.

3) Some webmail providers now give you the ability to set up external accounts and use their interface. Notable examples would be Gmail,, and Comcast webmail will have this feature at some point in the new format too.
