So this may be an elementary question but once my phone's wifi and internet are working properly, how do I set up msn mail on phone?

Sorry to ask repetitive or novice like questions but all of this is very new to me.

Thanks!

incoming, mail.comcast.net
outgoing, smtp.comcast.net:username

This is what I use in mac mail and it works
i put that in and it says cannot connect using SSL "do you want to try setting up the account without SSL?" i tried yes but i got: IMAP account verification failed "IMAP server mail.comcast.net is not responding blah blah..."

why do simple things have to be so hard sometimes :(

When adding a new account make sure you hit the "pop" button, Imap is the default. Comcast does not support Imap.
Incoming: pop.comcast.net
outgoing: smtp.comcast.net

For whatever it's worth, I just set up a Gmail account and have my comcast mail bounced to the gmail. It was really easy do do it that way.

this is how I have mine

it is a (POP) account:

incoming: mail.comcast.net
outgoing: smtp.comcast.net

Under the advance settings make sure you have (Use SSL) turned ON for both incoming and outgoing.
Server Port incoming: 995
Server Port outgoing: 587

This should make it work for you.
