    Summary

    Learn the Cox.net settings for POP and SMTP.

    Solution

    Before You Begin

    These settings are for accessing your Cox.net email. For any other email service, you may need to enter a server name for both incoming and outgoing mail in order to get your cox.net email in your preferred email client.

     

    ServerDescription
    POP or POP3The Post Office Protocol (POP) is the incoming server. POP3 is POP version 3. You will either see POP or POP3 when configuring your email account(s). POP enables you to download messages from a the email host location to a computer.
    SMTPThe Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) is the outgoing server. It sends messages from your computer to the host.

    Note: Cox does not currently support IMAP.
