Access to SMTP outgoing server while traveling WITHIN the US
I have my home PC with me on an extended stay at my son's home in Texas while I undergo cancer treatment. I depend on Outlook for email access and DO NOT want to use the cox webmail site.
I can send and receive emails via webmail, that's not the issue.
My outlook can not connect to smtp.cox.net and is being blocked because I'm connected to my son's home ISP (Frontier) rather than my home network.
This is very consistent with the problems well reported on this forum when traveling OUTSIDE the US but at last check, Texas was still part of the US.
I've spent over 8 hours on the phone with TIer 1 and Tier 2 support, had 3 service tickets submitted (and then marked Resolved without action of any kind).
As far as I can determine, Cox is the only ISP that blocks access to their outbound SMTP server when not on your home network. What's the point of having a laptop if you can't leave the house?
