    Wow - I love my Motorola Droid. I had no idea what I've been missing.

    Q: is it possible to add my comcast email account in addition to my gmail account? Some people still use comcast and I'd like to have access to both accounts.

    In the "add accounts" section, I only have corporate, facebook and gmail.

    thanks in advance -

    Jay

    yes it is possible.. go to your email app and add the account
    the settings are as follows
    incoming:
    username
    password
    pop3 = mail.comcast.net
    port = 110
    security = none
    delete from sever is up to you

    outgoing
    smtp = smtp.comcast.net
    port =587
    security = none
    require check-in = yes
    username
    password


    when it asks to do setup at the beginning click manual and enter those settings

    found it. thanks hook

    Hook answered this on a separate thread. The trick was to go to the "email" application rather than "settings".

    Looks like it works like a champ.

    Thanks Bill (er - hook :) )

    why is K-9 mail better?

    Thanks again for all the help. This is a great forum.

    Curious - why is K-9 mail better?

    Also, I was disappointed that the voice dial from my blue tooth head set (moto H720) does not work with my moto droid. Moto blamed it on the OS.

    cheers -

    K-9 is better in many ways. It doesn't repeatedly show emails you've already read as new, it has a ton more options - all around better by far. I think most people use it.
