Cox.net Email Imap, Pop3 & Smtp Server Settings

Cox.net is one of the e-mail service providers that allow you to configure your Cox E-mail or Cox Business e-mail account with a third-party e-mail application or client. Examples of such clients are Thunderbird and Outlook. You can easily configure your Cox e-mail account with these e-mail clients using the IMAP or POP3 and SMTP server settings. Once your Cox e-mail account is configured, you can check your e-mail anytime, anywhere- even on the go. However, the Cox e-mail service no longer exists or is not available for new users. As per reports, Cox has stopped providing services to any new user and the existing Cox Internet customer has to create a new Cox account. This change started effectively on August 15, 2019.
