Use the following server settings to configure most third-party email clients or applications to send or receive Cox Email. Different devices and email clients might name the settings differently or might not offer all of the following settings.
The security encryption version your email client uses is dependent upon your device operating system and email client versions. To ensure you're using TLS 1.2 or higher, Cox recommends that you upgrade your device's operating system and email client to the latest versions available from the manufacturer.
