This sounds like your email is setup as POP. Every POP email system I have used by default removes the email from its servers when the first download happens. So if your desktop is all it may be receiving the email and a few minutes later when you iPad or iPhone looks there is no email on the Comcast mail server.

You can test this by turning off your Desktop (or at least the Outlook email program) and noticing if you get email on one iOS device, but at a later time not on your desktop when you turn it on.

The solution is simple - convert your Comcast email to IMAP.
