Step 1: Enable IMAP Access

Before you can add your Comcast email to Outlook, you need to enable IMAP access in your Comcast account settings. This will allow Outlook to sync with your Comcast email. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Log in to your Comcast email account.
  2. Go to “Settings” and click on “Email.”
  3. Under “Email Settings,” click on “Advanced Settings.”
  4. Scroll down to “Mail Server Settings” and toggle the “Enable IMAP” option.
  5. Save your changes.

Step 2: Open Outlook

Open Outlook on your computer. If you do not have Outlook installed, you can download it from the Microsoft website or use the web version.

Step 3: Add New Account

In Outlook, go to “File” and click on “Add Account.” This will open a new window where you can enter your email address.

Step 4: Enter Your Comcast Email Address

Enter your Comcast email address in the provided field and click on “Connect.”

Step 5: Enter Your Password

Enter your Comcast email password and click on “Connect.” If you have two-factor authentication enabled, you will need to enter the code sent to your phone or email.

Step 6: Configure Server Settings

Outlook will automatically try to configure the server settings for your Comcast email. If it is unable to do so, you will need to enter the settings manually. Here are the settings you will need:

  • Incoming Mail Server:
  • Incoming Port: 993
  • Encryption Method: SSL/TLS
  • Outgoing Mail Server:
  • Outgoing Port: 587
  • Encryption Method: STARTTLS

Step 7: Test Account Settings

Once you have entered the server settings, click on “Next” to test your account settings. If everything is entered correctly, you will see a “Congratulations” message. If not, double-check your settings and try again.

Step 8: Finish Setup

Click on “Finish” to complete the setup process. Your Comcast email will now be added to Outlook, and you can access it from the app.

Additional Tips

  • If you are using the web version of Outlook, you can add your Comcast email by going to “Settings” and clicking on “View all Outlook settings.” Then, go to “Sync email” and click on “Add a new account.”
