When I have traveled in Europe in the past, I have been able to receive emails in my Cox email account on a Windows laptop and an iPhone, but neither of them can send replies or new email. They sit in the outbox and never send. I thought I had this solved years ago when the telephone support guy said to use "smtp.west.cox.net on channel 465 with SSL" but that has not worked lately. I see old postings about some services having cox SMTP servers blacklisted, or something like that. Does anyone see an obvious problem and know a solution?
GeoLynch's post said s/he's unable to "send replies or new email." So how is someone overseas supposed to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if Cox makes it impossible for them to send email?
