Most mobile carriers will allow SMS messages to be received via e-mail and delivered to your phone (i.e. email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org). Is there an e-mail address associated with the new Xfinity SMS messaging system? Sometimes I prefer to use this over my normal e-mail account for more urgent notifications, so this ability would be a great feature in my opinion!

Several web sites say you can send an email to a Comcast SMS device by addressing it to
I have no way to test this -- please let me know if it works.
Edit to add: Looks like those web sites are wrong -- this does not seem to work.

Unfortunately it doesn't appear to work. I'm able to send and receive normal SMS messages (to prove that I can in fact receive SMS messages normally). However e-mail delivery reported a "Connection timed out" e-mail delivery delayed message the following day, and obviously I never received the SMS message from the e-mail. It will attempt to deliver for another 24 hours, but I'm more than certain it won't deliver.

I dont know if this might help you but you can give this a try.
In xfinity connect full version you can load sms txt message program. (Beware it did take about a hour for it
to completely load)
Next once everything is loaded you can click on preference tab on the top of the page and click on text messaging on the left.
Once you are there you can turn on forward and then place the email address that you want it forwarded to and click save.
