    My advice, breakdown and go for the hosting, that way you can control
    your net existence better. Comcast is not known for being savvy or
    accomodating to there customers.

    I've used ONEWORLDHOSTING.com very nice, always helpful and good
    reputation for not going down.

    Please elaborate; specifics.

    I have 9 email addresses, ranging from Comcast's own to free services to
    pay set-ups. I'm not having any problem at all...

    Just get your own domain (fifteen bucks per year) and host it at a cheap
    hosting site (sixty bucks per year) and then your email is forever
    independent of your connectivity provider.
