How to Forward Your Comcast Mail to Gmail

Every Comcast/Xfinity Internet account includes an email address. Comcast uses this address to send account and service notices, but it also serves as a general-use email account for your personal emails. If you like receiving emails at your Comcast address, but prefer Gmail's interface, turn on email forwarding to send every Comcast email to an existing Gmail account.

Step

Click My Account on the top menu bar in your Comcast email or on any other Comcast page. If you aren't already logged in, sign in to continue.
