I really, really hate webmail. I'm in the process of moving and will need to change everything over to a cox server now. And I find I dislike the webmail service even more than my old IP.
I'm trying to set up Outlook 2016 so that I can download my email and set up folder etc, like I use to be able to with the MS free mail client. I've done this before, I've had a Cox account before. It shouldn't be hard and I don't know what I'm doing wrong.
I've tried setting the account up using IMAP and Using P, check the SSL box whatever it's called, for accessing with my security, and I get a failed message when it tries to authenticate.
I did receive the test email.... but Outlook appears to not able to connect using IMAP or POP3.
Am I being dense? Is a now a Cox issue using independent email clients? What can I do to fix it;.; Please use plain English and not techie talk. I understand using computers but get lost with a lot of techie vernacular...
