Unable to send e-mails, but I can still receive them.

Webmail works fine, but using outlook, windows live mail,  or my android e-mail client will give me the same problem. Yes I have checked and double checked the ports and checked authentication when needed. I'm been on the phone with 3 different reps and even a tier 2 customer support agent. This started happening 3 weeks ago, and I made no changes whatsoever. Cox told me basically if webmail is working, then its fine. I need easier access to my email rather than going to webmail. Anyone know a fix for this? Thank you!

    I am having a similar problem - iphone 6s can't send email when on cellular.  I can receive email when on cellular and I can send and receive when on wifi.  I verified all settings and even deleted my email account and reinput.  i have been to tier 2 with cox and they blew me off said it was a phone problem.  I went down to the apple store and the person I dealt with said he personally had the same problem with 6 other people who had cox email.  I escalated to tier 2 at apple and they found the same thing.

    How can this be resolved.  It is clearly a cox problem.

    if this can't be resolved, my option is to use gmail and if I do that I will dump cox entirely after more than 30 years and go with direct TV.

    Can anyone be of help?

    After reading all the posts about the exact same problem I am having, I will save myself the grief of having no solution from Cox and jump to Gmail. 

    Yes, I have called,  loaded, reloaded, changed passwords, cleaned cache, danced a jig, and sprinkled pixie dust over all. I will wait until tomorrow to see if my settings work, then it's Adios, Cox!

  • I am having the same challenges but only with Outlook. Have tried every possible setting POP/IMAP etc.  i can't even go to the webmail and change any of my user profiels w/o getting an error message.  Several different techs at Tier one and Tier two are stumped.  Microsoft is also at a loss.  i can not send email from my iphone or ipad. When will Cox fix this it was all working fine and then wham - its not. This is unacceptable.

    Having the exact same issue on all of my apple devices. Is there a solution to this problem? Why has Cox not posted a reply to these questions?
