1. Comments are most welcomed and appreciated.

  2. Comments are most welcome and appreciated.

Which one is more idiomatic? And also, it should be "most" or mostly"?

    Both are OK, in my opinion. However, not mostly, since that changes the meaning: mostly would mean not completely welcome and appreciated. – Lambie Dec 19 '17 at 16:46

    I'd go with #2 and perhaps change the word order: "Comments are welcome and most appreciated." – Mark Hubbard Dec 19 '17 at 17:30

As a native speaker from the US, I find #2 the most idiomatically correct.

I disagree with the commenter who said that you should change the word order to "Comments are welcome and most appreciated." That sounds fine too, but I personally think your version sounds more normal.

You have it right--it should be "most," not "mostly." (If you said "mostly," it would mean that comments are "mostly appreciated," as in, you don't appreciate all of them.)
