How do I set up email on my Android device?

  • Do you offier IMAP support for mobile devices?  If so, what are the incomming server settings?  It would be very helpful if you don't already.

    Our residential mail servers only support the POP protocol, however we do have plans to support IMAP in the future. If you are looking to leave a copy of your mail messages on the server so that you can access them from another device or computer, there should be an option to "Leave the message on the server" in the advanced mail settings.

  • Hi, would you have any details on when this will be implemented? I also find this a better service then POP3 as you will not have to manage all of your devices separately when cleaning your inbox. 

    Thanks. 

  • I would second that request for IMAP.  In a world where almost everyone is accessing email from multiple devices (from their desktop, their phone, their portable devices), POP3 just doesn't cut it.  It isn't a question of being able to leave a message on the server ... it is the inconvenience and high potential for miscommunication when you have to manually process each individual email separately on each separate device.  (How many times do you look at an email on one device and have to ask yourself, "Did I respond to this one yet or not?" and how many times did you remember wrong?)

    It is also a little ironic that a paid internet/email service like Cox doesn't offer IMAP when almost every free email provider (gmail, yahoo, att, etc.) does.  

    I really do want to make Cox my go-to provider for all my services ... but the outdated and minimally functional email provided makes it very hard to do so.

  • I have to totally agree with mjgolden!  I couldn't have said it better myself.  I am rolling over my personal e-mail off of my work email which uses an exchange server.  I have had my cox email but never used it because it was pretty much substandard.  I "assumed" that after 15 years is had improved.  Boy was I wrong!  I want to access off of multiple devices also and also have access to folders.  I am simply floored that Cox is STILL using  POP instead of IMAP by now.  Seriously? 

    When will Cox change over to IMAP so they can compete in the current environment?   I find it pretty pathetic that I will have to pull my email into Yahoo just to make it "work" right?

    What happened to "MY friend in the digital age"?
