    I've read the other posts re this general issue. It seems most folks use a local email agent such as Outlook or Thunderbird on their PCs. I just use Comcast email via its web access on my PC so no mail is local - all is on the server. Here's the puzzle (or at least one manifestation of it). When I send something from my iPad the sent email does not show up in the Sent folder on my PC. As you know, with web access when I send from one PC then access Comcast email using any other PC or Mac or whatever, the contents of the Sent folder, the Inbox, etc. are all the same. So what gives? This is making me hesitate sending email from my iPad.

    There is no syncing with the iPad and comcast so even deleting doesn't match up...

    You can access comcastmail via safari on the iPad just fine, even try the mobile version for faster loading. So there is an alternative.

    Thanks

    Just tried it with Safari and, as you said, it works fine. Thanks. How did you know that?

    Help

    I have been unable to open my Comcast mail. I can delete, move mail to Spam but I can't read mail or open folders. Exactly how are you doing this?
