So what is going on? All my services except IMAP email are working. The email occasionally connects. It started early 12/7/2016 and since then my several accounts have only succeeded sync on MS Office Professional 2010 about 2 or three times (in ~36 hours). My phone (iPhone7) is working a little better, but still big delays. This happened about 2 years ago when they first rolled out IMAP and failed to build out for the load. It took them over 6 months to fix it that time. Why am I not surprised?
All COX is saying about it at this point...
