    Comcast also has a mobile application you can use, but I don't find it to be good.

    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!

    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.

    Thats a cool idea Keeper. I have all my junk mail going to comcast and all my personal email going to gmail. How do you do that?

    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.
