Setting up Cox email to run on Android Email App

I successfully setup Outlook to receive Cox email (through Yahoo) using the instructions I found in another forum. I also wanted to be able to continue using the Android App on my phone to receive Cox email and not have to use the Yahoo mail app, as it is full of Ads. The Android App didn't work anymore after the Cox email transition to Yahoo. I followed the same instructions as I did for Outlook:

  1. I got a temp password from Yahoo.
  2. I deleted my account in the Android App and started over.
  3. I used the temp password.
  4. Used the 993 and 465 ports.

It didn't work. Does anyone have a suggestion?

      Useless information. I go to, type "Cox" into search field, and it says "Sorry, no results were found."
