For MAC users with Outlook 365 that want to transition from COX to Yahoo email

Below are a set of repeatable instructions for the transition from COX.net to yahoo.com email

MS OUTLOOK 365 migration

  1. on MacBook; open Outlook
    Outlook > settings > personal settings/accounts 
  2. Click “+” to add account lower left corner
  3. Enter Email address username@cox.net
  4. Click Continue
  5. Select “not IMAP?” in upper right corner and select “Y! Yahoo”
  6. Select “Sync to the Microsoft Cloud” by pressing “Continue”
  7. Log into Yahoo with email account & regular password ( and prove you are not a robot)
  8. Click “Agree”, if you agree
  9. Add a verification option if requested by Yahoo
  10. Access for MS Outlook > agree
  11. Select profile in MS Outlook if asked
  12. It isn’t working until you get a grayed out “Microsoft Sync technology” under the email address in the “accounts” settings (not sure why)

This has now worked repeatably for me with 9 Cox email accounts
