Web mail client - how to send email from a specified email address (not my comcast email)

Most mail clients allow you to configure them to send email from a specified email other than the one that is used to recieve the email.  Is this possible in the xfinity connect web mail client?

No.  You will need to use an email client like Thunderbird, etc in order to do this.

Actually, through perseverance, I made it work.  I created a new account with the email I wanted to send from and then used the comcast ingoing and outgoing parameters for the mail server - works great!  Now I can send from the email that I have forwarded to my comcast email and keep my comcast email privateSmiley Happy
