I hate the new Comcast email format. It is nearlly non functional. I want the old one back.The new Comcast email format is worse than all I have used before. There must be a solution, even if I have to cancel Comcast.

Re: The new Comcast email format is worse than all I have used before.

I'm not having any trouble with the new format, but some people don't want to use it.  You have a number of perfectly good alternatives if you just want to use the Comcast email account ------------------------------

 


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 Outlook.com, Gmail, Yahoo, Mail.com 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, Outlook.com, and Mail.com. Comcast webmail now has this feature as well.
