    It's not legit.  A scuzzball wrote it...a scuzzball sent it...and a scuzzball is baiting you to click a link.

    Why is the name "Cox" exclamatory?
    How does a subscriber update webmail?
    There is no provision 17.8 in a Terms and Conditions.

    @Bruce, @WiderMouthOpen This is mostly unrelated to OP's post, but I watched an episode of "America's Book of Secrets" on History Channel the other night entitled "Big Bother is Watching" that I think you might find interesting. 

    Near the first of the program, the narrator says something like "There are those that believe in the existence of a book...".  All it takes for the complete statement to be true is for someone at History Channel to have told a couple of hard core conspiracy theorists that it exists.  For the record, I'm not a believer.  Keep in mind this program is from the same people that brought us "Ancient Aliens", stories about Bigfoot, etc.  But, some of it could be real.  (Hello, NSA ). 😒

    It's currently available On Demand: TV > TV Networks > Networks H-M > History > America's Book HD > America's Book Secrets S1 Ep09 HD     

    I'd be interested in hearing what you think.

        The title of the program is "America's Book of Secrets: Special Edition".  The complete narrator's statement is "There are those that believe in the existence of a book, a book that contains the most highly guarded secrets of the United States of America.  A book whose very existence is known to only a select few".  You can probably see where I got the the conspiracy theorists part.  The "book of secrets" is History Channel nonsense, but some of the things referenced in the program could be real.
