Email Setup: Port Numbers and POP vs. IMAP
While setting up your Comcast Email account. you will be asked some information about email “protocols.” Following are the basic things that you should consider at the time of setting up.
Port Numbers: An email port number is basically a description of how your email moves from one email server to another. We no longer support port 25 following it compromises security and can spread spam too. Users who are still using an older email program like Outlook Express, Outlook, or Mac Mail, might face trouble sending the email.
POP vs. IMAP: Users can use POP (Post Office Protocol) and IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol) as the two different ways to get an email in your email program. We at this point will recommend our users to use IMAP for their Comcast email.
The reason for using IMAP in the email is that POP can cause problems sometimes when users check their Comcast email from more than one device including smartphones or computers. IMAP provides better synchronization of emails while checking them on multiple devices.
