Cox Email Server Settings

Details

Cox Email is a free service that was included with all Cox High Speed Internet packages. As of August 15, 2019, Cox Email is no longer available to new users.

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 1.0 or higher, Cox recommends that you upgrade your device's operating system and email client to the latest versions available from the manufacturer.
