Web mail *only* works with HTTP clients; i.e., web browsers. Using a mail
client, such as MS Outlook 2003, requires either POP3, or IMAP for
downloading email, and SMTP for uploading email.
If you used Comcast web mail to send email, there is no way to synchronize
its "Sent Items" folder with MS Outlook. None. No way. Can't be done. To
synchronize client (MSOL) folders with server folders *requires* that the
server be either IMAP, or HTTPMail. Comcast offers neither.
