How to Add Mailboxes in Comcast Email

By Techwalla Internet Editor

Anyone using Comcast email can get additional benefits by adding mailboxes. Each mailbox has 250 mg available for use and you can add up to 7 boxes. Adding mailboxes can be handy because you have a new email address for each of them, and you can use them for various purposes.

Step 1

Open your Comcast email and select "Preferences." You will find this on the bottom left-hand side of your inbox page.

Step 2

Pick "Create Additional Email Accounts." This is located near the bottom, on the right side of the page.

Step 3

Create a new email address. You must provide an email address, a user name and password for the account. This will become a secondary account under your primary email account. Each email account that is created should have a user name and password.

Step 4

Choose "Mailbox Manager" and "Add Mailbox."

Step 5

Follow the information on the screen. "Comcast Mailbox" should already be highlighted. Enter the user name and password you just created in the boxes. Select "Save," and you have created a new mailbox.

Step 6

Continue to create email accounts and mailboxes up to the maximum of 7. You don't have to create them all at the same time.

Step 7

Note the email addresses, the user names and passwords for each mailbox you create and store the information in a safe spot. You may need to access the information at any time.
