  • If Cox Email will not send after updating the outgoing server settings, then reset your password at www.cox.com/password and update the password in your email client and all related applications.
  • Cox recommends using the latest software version of third-party email clients. If your email client is an older version, we recommend you update the software to the latest version to ensure the most secure experience. If you need assistance updating your email client, then contact the manufacturer.
