The idea of using Comcast email can be immensely helpful to stay connected with the other services of Comcast or Xfinity you are using. One biggest benefit of using the Comcast email service as your personal email id is the fact that all of your Comcast services will be integrated together.

It means you can continue to enjoy the safe and fast email services of Outlook and at the same time keep all your Comcast services integrated with ease of mind.

In the incoming mail server name, enter imap.comcast.net.
The incoming mail server port number should be 993 with SSL ON.
If Gmail lets you choose an authentication method, choose STARTTLS.
Then the incoming mail server port number should be 143 with SSL ON.
The outgoing mail server name should be smtp.comcast.net.
Port number: 587 (SMTP) or 465 (SMTPS).
Encryption should be TLS or in the absence of TLS, you can use SSL.
In the authentication section, enter the Comcast.net email address.
