Redirecting Emails from Comcast to Gmailby Brian Hooper
If you have Gmail, you don’t have to give up your Xfinity by Comcast email account; you can have those messages sent directly to your Gmail account. To automatically transfer the email you receive from your Comcast email address to your Gmail address, you can change your Comcast email settings directly from any Web browser. Moreover, Gmail has a process that enables users to redirect messages from other email providers and Comcast is one of the providers it supports.
Click on “Email” from the Xfinity by Comcast website and then log in (see link in Resources).
Click on “Account” from the top menu.
Click on “Users and Preferences."
Click “On” in the “Email Forwarding” section.
Enter your Gmail address in the “Forward all mails to” box. If you want Comcast to save a copy of the emails as well, put a check in the box labeled “Save a copy of forwarded emails.”
Click “Save” when done.
Click the Gmail gear icon, then select “Settings” from the list of menu items.
Click on the “Accounts and Import” tab.
Click on “Import mail and contacts” from the ““Import mail and contacts” section.
Complete all the set-up steps in the pop-up boxes. For instance, the initial pop-up asks you to enter the email account from which you want to import the emails. Click “Continue” after you complete each box.
