  1. Here I am two years later and your solution worked great! I spent more than an hour on the phone with Comcast, and they could not (would not?) tell me how to do this. My clue was that suddenly, I was receiving emails with my personal calendar details included (!) as a “reminder.” No one could say how they got the information and of course, no one knew how to stop taking it! Thank you so much.
