Question and Answer

  • Comcast email worked fine on a Nokia Windows phone with 8.1 for years. It stopped working when Comcast made some security changes to their email system. These changes caused no problems with a win10 home computer, an android tablet or the computer system at work. Only the windows phone with 8.1. Gmail works fine on the phone too.
