Sending email while traveling in Europe

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?

  • The worst think about this is that from my experience, the Cox SMTP server DOES NOT SEND ANY REJECTION MESSAGE, it simply accepts the mail as sent from your device, and then discards it, never sending it to your intended recipient.  If this was a response to an important message, you look like an idiot because you will never have been responded.  If you were sending an important message, you will never get a response (because it was never sent).  

    I had to switch my SMTP to gmail since I travel often and this was a disaster.    (It has a minor drawback in that I couldn't figure out how to suppress recipients seeing my gmail address and sometimes thinking that is my primary address.)
