Comcast email addresses: .com or .net?


Here's an ever perplexing question (and one that results in a lot of traffic to my blog): Do Comcast email addresses end in .com or .net? Is it comcast.com or comcast.net? Am I aliversonchicago@comcast.com or aliversonchicago@comcast.net?

Comcast has live email addresses at both comcast.com and comcast.net. The difference is, comcast.net email addresses are reserved for customers of Comcast/Xfinity, while comcast.com addresses are reserved for employees of Comcast.

A while ago I posted a full breakdown of Comcast domains, but I thought it would be good to call this out more explicitly today -- regular joe users signing up for your emails using the email address that comes free with their Comcast Xfinity cable service? That's always going to be comcast.net.

Some platforms will even block signups from emails at comcast.com, because most of those signups are typos -- people who typed comcast.com when they should have typed comcast.net if they wanted to give their correct email address. Blocking these attempts can be a bit of an imperfect solution, as there are indeed valid email addresses at comcast.com -- it's just that they're going to be Comcast employees, not customers.

TL;DR? Mostly .net.
