Re: IMAP Trial from XFINITY!

Again, the issue is smartphones/devices - not PCs or even Macs. The Outlook.com issue is even sillier because by default it uses the SAME mail protocol as Hotmail (which it is seeking to replace) - Exchange ActiveSync (which the Windows 8 Mail app supports , as does Outlook 2013). I have all three mail services (CHSI, Outlook.com, and GMail) on my Windows 8 desktop and use a SINGLE mail client with them all: Outlook 2013. However, no two mail services use the same protocol: POP3 with CHSI, EAS with Outlook.com, and IMAP4 with GMail. Outlook has no issues, either.
