Is Comcast Email POP or IMAP?

When you are talking about Comcast email, you must know that they are one of the best Email service provider companies that support both POP and IMAP. Therefore you can select any of them according to your need. But if you ask us or even Xfinity itself, everyone will recommend an IMAP Comcast server instead of POP servers.

The reason behind this recommendation is the issues you face with the POP server. POP creates problems for you in checking email from different devices. This is because the email you get using the POP server will get deleted from the website. Whereas with the IMAP server, when you send a mail, it will not be deleted from the website and will sync simultaneously on all iOS devices. Thus, with IMAP, Your email will be safe and synced with all the devices until you decide to delete it.
So, it is always advised to use an IMAP server instead of POP, even though Comcast supports both IMAP and POP.
