Cannot Access E-Mail Via IMAP on any device

Hi there,

I'm posting here because I have had 3 phone calls with cox customer support over the last month and they have been unable to resolve the issue I am having even though they first agreed that it was an issue on the backend of their server.

I can login to webmail.cox.net with my cox email and password, no problems.

I cannot access my cox email through any imap device. I have tried an iMac, iPhone, iPad, and Android devices, at my own home and from different locations on different wifi networks. So I know it is not an issue with my devices. I have also triple-checked the imap server settings, and ensured they are exactly according to cox's requirements: imap.cox.net , secure port 993, etc...

The first cox customer support agent also was unable to access the account via IMAP either. That support agent was able to somehow get it working, but never followed-up to say how. And it worked for 1 week, and now the same issue has happened again.

I have even tried changing my cox account password completely, and I am able to login via webmail.cox.net everytime, yet any attempt to login via imap with the same login details is rejected by cox as an invalid username or password.

Can someone at cox please look at my account on the cox server backend and determine what is causing this? It is extremely frustrating to get locked out of email for a month like this.

Thank you for your help!
