I keep a Cox email account open to monitor alerts via my iPhone X and iPad Pro2 but not in Outlook on my pcs.
Lately, I have been inclined to close that email account because for several weeks I am flooded with SPAM.
Is there a fix for this by Cox or a solution that I missed?
Ever since Cox moved to a new webmail provider we have been flooded with SPAM. Unfortunately the only suggestion from Cox is a reference to this page...
...which is absolutely NO HELP at all...
The old SPAM filters were much more robust and capable of screening out SPAM...
hey now it's only the incoming servers that can't detect possible spam. I got a bunch that link to a valid company and sent an email to that company asking about who pays the spamer for linking to them.I was asked by the company to forward the emails to them for investigations, GUESS WHAT cox smtp servers are much smarter than the incoming servers they identified the emails i'm trying to send to the company as requested as possible spam and won't send them. either as reg emails or attachments.
NOW that seems to me like just maybe cox is being paid by the spamers to let their emails in to us. how else can you explain that.
Also forwarding them to firstname.lastname@example.org is a waste of time as I sent them the same spam from trusted meds over and over up to 50 at a time and still receive them almost every day.
can't wait until any other highspeed service is avail. in this area to change.....not to mention outages at least 1 a week but thats another forum topic
