Your Comcast Business email account is powered by Microsoft® Exchange Server, and therefore the best method to connect Microsoft® Outlook is via an Exchange connection. This type of connection allows Outlook to synchronize your email, calendar, contacts, and tasks with the Exchange Server in real time. To connect Microsoft® Outlook to your Comcast Business email account, find the version of Outlook you have and follow the instructions below.
This is the preferred method for connecting to our Exchange servers. In most cases Outlook will configure itself automatically by following the steps below:
On the Windows Start menu, select Control Panel > Mail > Show Profiles > Add.
Note: To access Control Panel using Windows 8: right-click anywhere on the Start screen and select All Apps or press the WIN and X keys together to access the Power User Menu.
Type a profile name, and then select OK.
Type your name, email address, and your mailbox password twice, then select Next.
When you get a security prompt, select Don't ask me about this website again, and then select Allow.
When prompted for your Username and Password, use your Comcast Business email address for Username.
Microsoft® Outlook will now discover your email settings and configure itself to connect to your Exchange Service mailbox. Once this is done, select Finish. Then, you can open your new profile.
On the Windows Start Menu, open Mail or Calendar. On the Welcome page select Get Started.
Note: If you don't see the Welcome page and the app opens, go to the Add an additional email account section of this article to set up your account.
On the Accounts page, select Add account.
Enter the email address and password for the account.
Select Sign in, then Done. Your data will start syncing as soon as your account is set up.
Open the Mail app, and at the bottom of the left navigation pane, select Settings.
Note: On a phone or tablet, select the three dots at the bottom of the page to access Settings.
Select Accounts, then Add account.
Select Sign in. Select Done when your account is set up.
Determine your incoming and outgoing server addresses by signing in to My Account and selecting Email from the Manage Services menu.
Select View DNS settings on the left side of the Email landing page. Your Comcast Business email account's IMAP, POP and SMTP servers will be listed in the DNS Name column for each Mail Access Type.
Thank you! We've received your information.
After activating your Comcast Business online account, download Microsoft® Outlook 2010.
Create or delete an email account with these simple step-by-step instructions.
