Xfinity email update is HORRIBLE!!

The new Xfinity Email is HORRIBLE!!!!!!!!!  I HATE IT!!!
You have eliminated dates and replaced with  "Yesterday" or days of the week.  THIS IS NOT HELPFUL!!
You have messed up my folders.... I have to close them down manually each time I open or backspace.  THIS IS NOT HELPFUL!!
I have to back out of a message TWICE in order to return to my inbox.  THIS IS NOT HELPFUL!!
I no longer can see the listed folder to which I have dragged a message.  THIS IS NOT HELPFUL!!!
My address book has DUPLICATES OF EVERYONE!!!!!!!!!!  THIS IS NOT HELPFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I want to return to the former template.  Why don't you give consumers this option?????????????

Re: Xfinity email update is HORRIBLE!!

You have options:

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 now has this feature as well.


You have options.
