    A friend bought a new PC with W10 on it and I was refreshing myself on the setting up of email on Windows Mail. I somehow lost my contacts in the People app and tried to redo it and kept being notified of all the permissions I would have to grant Microsoft to my Google account to carry out this task. When I first set the People app up this wasn't the case. There is a way to set up Gmail to receive all my Comcast email and send out through Gmail appearing to come from my Comcast email accounts.

    Would this be a wise decision to use Gmail for this purpose?

    If you are going to use Comcast, then I would just use their (Comcast) internet access.
    Or, you could use the likes of Outlook or most any other email program (not internet mail) and set up to receive using POP type of email.
