How do I change the windows live mail client from pop3 to imap?

Re: changing email from pop3 to imap

You don't change the POP3 account.  They are two different versions of the same account.  Just recreate your Comcast account in WLM, and once you have entered the user ID and password, I think it will auto-configure it for you using IMAP.  Comcast email is not IMAP compliant by default.  Once it's up and running you can then delete the POP3 version.  If you need the settings though, they are here------------------
