To set up Comcast e-mail in Microsoft Outlook Express, you need to follow some simple steps. You first need to open the Microsoft Outlook Express application in your system. Then, the next step is to select the 'Tools' menu from the application and click on the 'Accounts' option. A new Internet Accounts window would then be displayed on your system screen.

After making the selection operation, you need to click the 'Properties' button. In the General tab appearing, you need to ensure that the listed e-mail address is your Comcast.net address.

Then, click on the 'My server requires authentication' and click on the 'Settings' button. In the 'Outgoing Mail Server' window, select the 'Use same setting as my incoming mail server'. The final step is to enter '465' in 'Outgoing Mail', '995' in 'Incoming Mail' and click 'OK' button.
Here are some benefits of setting up Comcast e-mail in Microsoft Outlook Express:
- Receive e-mail messages
- Getting more space
- Sending large files
Receive e-mail messages
You can receive Comcast e-mail messages by setting up Comcast in the Microsoft Outlook Express. You could get your e-mail messages from anywhere with an Internet connection. The Comcast e-mail would provide you with access to an authenticated SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) server. This allows you to send e-mail messages using the Microsoft Outlook from the Comcast account while you are using another Internet service.
Getting more space
The Comcast e-mail provides you with a typical 10 MB of storage space for each Comcast e-mail account. With the Comcast e-mail in your Microsoft Outlook Express, you would no longer need to worry about the storage space in your Microsoft Outlook Express. You can avoid the need to delete messages from your inbox every time.
The Microsoft Outlook Express, when set up with Comcast e-mail, would allow you to attach up to 10 MB files. But this is a limited capacity as you would always need to send files up to 100 MB or greater. If you need to send a file larger than 10 MB, you could then use the File Transfer Protocol. The File Transfer Protocol is designed to allow you to transfer files of all sizes over the Internet.
