Re: Transferring domain from GoDaddy to Comcast

Welcome Kim.  To move the service to Comcast you must first add the CNAME record entry to the GoDaddy name server.  Once the record is verified as active in the Business Portal, you can change the MX records and DNS servers to point to Comcast.  You can locate the records for your account by logging into the portal account at https://businessclass.comcast.net.  Please check your private message for additional information concerning the DNS records.  Please let us know if you need additional assistance.

HI Kim.  Here are instructions for setting up an exchange account.

 

Connect Microsoft Outlook 2007 or 2010

  1. On the Start menu, select Control Panel, select Mail, select Show Profiles, and then select Add.

  2. Type a profile name, and then select OK.

  3. Type your name, email address, and your mailbox password twice, then select Next.

  4. When you get a security prompt, select the Don't ask me about this website again check box, and then selectAllow.

  5. When prompted for your Username and Password, use your Business Class email address for Username.

  6. Microsoft Outlook 2007 will now discover your email settings and configure itself to connect to your Exchange Service mailbox. Once this is done, select Finish. Then, you can open your new profile in Microsoft Outlook.

     

    Also here is a Link to instructions on setting up a POP email account in Outlook 2007.  Please let us know if you need further assistance.

     

    Thank You

Re: Transferring domain from GoDaddy to Comcast

Thank you for the reply John.  Do I add the CNAME in GoDaddy or change the existing CNAME for email in GoDaddy to the CNAME provided by Comcast?

 

Also, do I wait to make changes to the MX records in GoDaddy until after the record is verified as active in the Business Portal?

 

Thanks again for your help!

HI Kim.  The CNAME has to be entered first.  If the MX records or the Name Servers are changed prior to CNAME verification,

the service will not activate on the Comcast Portal.

Re: Transferring domain from GoDaddy to Comcast

Thank you!  Ok, I followed your instructions for DNS with godaddy and I verified this domain on my comcast account and I added an email address with godaddy domain.  How do I configure Outlook to set this email account up to send/receive mail?  Thanks for your help!
