    what if my password is not accepted?

    Sherry –

    Are you able to use that same password to sign into If not, you probably need to reset it, which will unfortunately mean contacting Comcast…

    I do not want IMAP. (Bewildered why so many people recommend this but that’s besides the point)

    When adding account to i-phone, IMAP is automatically selected. There is no opportunity to set up my account as POP3 because setting are automatically detected. Ugh, how do I set up my Comcast email as POP3?

    Password is universal for your email. If it is not being accepted, most likely you need to reset your password from Comcast’s portal.

    wow, your description is much more easier to follow step by step. While some site content just information but you had given clear clarification on each step with an image. It is more easier and saves time through your content.
    Great help for the new user or beginner.

    Suggested procedure syncs email and notes only, not contacts, so not helpful.
