  • Cannot connect using these instructions. The chat person - "Camille" - was of no help whatsoever. Her grammar was horrible, too. Please get valid information and Americans to answer the chat requests.

  • I give you a MINUS ONE. I'm trying to set up my cox.net email address via IMAP on my new android phone with no luck. You say "On this page you'll find the Cox mail settings for Android. Besides an overview with the imap and pop3 server mail settings for Cox, we offer you a comprehensive guide for setting up your Cox email on a Android device." and then the settings shown only apply to POP3. Where are the IMAP settings? Someone in the U.S. who speaks American English should QA these instructions before they go live on your site. Other errors in grammar and instructions exist but not going to waste my time doing your job for you.
