Outlook 2016 frequent popups asking to re-enter user name & password for imap.cox.net server.
Reading the forum it appears this is a known issue; and hoping there is a solution.
Background; I have had my cox email account for +10 years. Same email address, username, password.
About a year ago I started getting occasional popup windows while in Outlook asking me to enter my user name and password. Some days it will happen a dozen times, then weeks go by and all okay. Very random. In the past weeks the frequency of the pop ups has increased to the point that it is now almost constant.
I have multiple email accounts on Outlook and it is only the Cox email which has this issue, so I don't believe it is an Outlook problem.
I have done all the standard things, set up new profile, delete and re set up email account, etc. Same problem. As others have suggest it appears to be a problem with Cox's servers.
Hoping there is a solution, as status quo is not acceptable.
