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?
I have also been affected by an increase in spam in the last month or so that seems very similar to the spam that's plaguing xenolalia. Every day I get 3, 4 or 5 junk emails with a similar format. The Subject field varies but sometimes appears to be from legitimate companies (eg. LifeLock, Proactiv). The From field addresses are randomly generated and never the same for any two emails (eg. firstname.lastname@example.org) so I can't create a filter rule to block them. The header also contains some HTML text that consists of a random mix of real and garbage words (eg. "jelisic conceptual. wykeham gesberg manzaneque spurious chromatic fazio dithers. Middletown kerosene clumsy locandiera affolter sharpshooter wurlitz taine wentzel plectrum."). I have marked these as spam but Cox Spam blocker still lets them thru. I'd like to know if the Cox Spam Blocker is sophisticated enough to block this kind of spam. I would also like to know what Cox plans to do to stop it.
except that hours after cox has allowed it into our inboxes, cox will refuse to forward it because...IT MAY CONTAIN SPAM!
