We suggest you read the given troubleshooting carefully and follow the steps for an easy solution to the issues you face with Comcast email.
Fix 1: Check if the Xfinity Comcast server is down.
To ensure if the Xfinity Comcast server is down or not, or is it only down for you or everyone else, go to your safari browser and select “Outage report” via visiting outage reports and other third-party websites and the down detector on your iPhone’s web browser, you could quickly figure out if your server is down or not.
After you have figured out the server is down, visit “isitdownforeveryoneorjustme” to confirm further.
There could be two possibilities-
– First, the server could be down for everyone. If it is down for everyone, you have to wait until Comcast resolves the issue.
– Second, if the server is only down for you, you have to contact the local administration to fix the issue.
Once you get to know the status of your server, visit the Comcast mail once again after the issues are fixed.
Log into your account and click on the mail icon. Once you have, you should be able to send, receive and perform actions.
If not, and if “500-error” pops up on your iPhone screen, it simply means the servers are down, and you should wait for the servers to come live again for proper functioning.
Fix 2: Check your internet connection.
Having a poor internet connection can interfere with your Xfinity mail, especially when you are using a cellular network and haven’t given Xfinity mail access to the cellular network.
