Switching to another provider, is automatic email forwarding available?

Never mind, I figured it out. Thanks.

I have to switch to another provider and wonder if I can get all my Comcast email automatically forwarded to my new email or do I have to notify all my contacts one by one?

Thanks.

To keep your Comcast email account(s) active after you disconnect service, you need to access them at least once every nine months. See https://www.xfinity.com/support/internet/email-only-faqs/ and https://www.xfinity.com/support/internet/using-email-only/.

A little more specifically, yes, you can set the account up to auto-forward if you want to.  In the new email format, click on the gear icon in the upper right corner of the Inbox page, then on Settings.  Under Mail you will see Auto Forward.
