  1. I hope I'm putting this in the right place and I know it's probably I really simplistic question, but here it is:

    I have Comcast Cable internet via modem that connects to my DLink 4500 gaming router. I have a PC(wired) , Laptop (wireless), another PC(wired), and XBox360(wireless) all connected to the Cable internet and home network.

    I was thinking about changing my Comcast mail to Outlook express -- is this a good Idea? Can it be done? If so how do I do it? If I do it will all my mail accounts go through Outlook or can I just do mine and not my son's and husband's? Sorry again if this is not the place, but I figured you're used to newbies not knowing where to post. Thanks

    Your Comcast email is known as a Webmail solution, while Outlook, Outlook Express
    are Pop3 Email Clients.

    All you need is to configure your Email Client to access the Postoffice @ Comcast;
    you will actually still be able to use BOTH :)

    Thank you

    Jobeard, thank you for your reply. I followed the link you sent and set up my Outlook with no problems. Thanks I would have been looking forever to find that.
