How to fix this?
Here are a few solutions you can try out to fix these issues.
Check your network connection
The first thing you should do is to check your internet connection. If you’re using WiFi, check to ensure that you have an active internet connection; otherwise, try restarting the router. If you’re on mobile data, check to see if it’s enabled and whether you have good network coverage.
Check Comcast servers
If your internet connection is fine, check if Comcast is facing any outages or not. You can refer to the Comcast website, their Twitter or use a third-party site like Downdetector to see if there’s a problem at Comcast’s end. If there is, there’s not much you can do other than sit back and let Comcast handle the situation.
Check your email client
The next thing you should do is check if your email client is configured correctly and using the correct servers to send and receive emails. Checking your login credentials is also a good idea.
Delete browser data
If you’re using Comcast email in your browser, try deleting the browser data to see if that helps resolve the error.
Step 1: Type in chrome://settings/clearBrowserData in your browser’s address bar and hit Enter.
Step 2: Select the cache and cookies options and ensure the Time range is set to All time. Click on the Clear now button to clear out all the data.
Now try restarting the browser, and your email should work fine.
