Sign out of the email that you are using and then sign in to the secondary account with the username and password you created.



I am not a Comcast employee; I am just a customer, volunteering my time to help other customers here in the Forums.

Once you login to the secondary account you can go into the settings and enter the primary e-mail address for Auto-Forward and you will get a copy of all the e-mail sent to the secondary comcast account forwarded to the primary account.  If you want to keep a copy in the secondary account be sure to check the Save a Copy of Forwarded Emails box.

Another option, assuming you are in the new email format, would be to add the secondary account as an external account under "Add Mail Account" in the folders pane.  That way you can check it without having to keep signing in all the time.
