    I was canceling my comcast email service and I was wondering if when this happened if the Mail app would still retain all the emails it has downloaded from the comcast server? Also if it does retain them will it retain the attachments as well?

    Thanks

    As long as you have it set up as a POP account, once it's downloaded it will remain. If you've set it up as an IMAP account you very well may lose your old messages and attachments.

    I'm not sure whether Comcast even offers IMAP support, so you're probably OK.

    Thanks, so once the application downloads the message and attachment it will remain on my computer until I delete it on the computer?

    Just to clarify about POP. Are the emails and attachments forever saved regardless of what happens to my account?
