3rd party notification is not working again and it looks like no moderators have been on here in days, so i can't find any of my old post threads. happy holiday weekend.
spam did not take the week off, however & wanted to bring everyone up to date with my "ticket" to fix the spam in the inbox/legit stuff in the spam box issue.
my ticket was closed today, message saying everything was working properly. this read to me (since i missed the tier 2 tech call at the crack of dawn) by a tier one tech who a) would not put me through to tier 2 and b) insisted cox has not used a third party for email and "can't do much more.."
well, a couple of days ago a reply from my sister to an email i sent was in my spam folder. and "marine toys for tots," "best friends animal society," and several others i've told the filter for months are NOT spam go there too. but they cited 2 i complained about that have now gone...ONCE...to my inbox. FIXED!
on the other hand, yesterday i pulled 6 obvious spam ads out of my inbox & marked them as spam. i have blocked sites...until i figured out that there obviously is a random generator for email addresses attached to outlook.com & that will be a forever thing. so i've tried to set up filters for "from", but i have no expectation they will work.
so cox is obviously saying ...sorry people. we can't make it work.
but i knew that.
yes, wider...., i know...change a 30 year old email address to a hundred different people & go to gmail. at my age i could die before i got thru that! it's a shame we can't get what we pay for from cox.

Hey now, don't paint me as the Gmail fan boy. :-) I not a fan of their privacy policies as of late. I was going to be looking into ProtonMail, but this big outage recently put me off to that. Not that the impact was huge, just that they let it happen to begin with.
I would LOVE if Cox email would be dependable again. Anything you can do or say to make that happen, I am all for. I just can't wait for that to happen. I need a good email provider now, not in a couple weeks/months/years. Keep up the good fight though!

I feel your frustration! I’m so fed up with the spam going to my inbox. I’m quite confident in saying “Cox has no filter”. I’m getting at least 20 per day. AT LEAST!!! I’m seriously on the verge of switching back to gmail. They have an awesome filtering system in place. The only thing holding me back is having to update my email address on every single website that I log into. That would take days.
Currently when I try to mark and move something to spam I get an error message that reads “The message you requested is unavailable. It may already have been deleted or moved from this folder.”

Thank you for your attention in this matter. I would consider your suggestion, but I as well as so many others access their email via a smartphone. I have yet to learn how to forward an email as an attachment from a smartphone.
