    I use cox also but Outlook not OE. I don't get those messages. Cox can be useful (sometimes) if you give them a call.

    If it were me I would call the ISP & ask them what the trouble is. Either outlook is not configured properly or they have a problem. Either way you should be able to get it working again.

    Then Cox messed it up. You need to call them and have them fix it.

    This is an ISP problem, not software related.
     
  10. yea, dont know. i can check it when i goto the webmail page at
    http://webmail.cox.net/
    but not through outlook. which sucks! e-mailing ppl is a pain.
    like when i click on the link at the bottom of the page that says CONTACT US it brings up outlook which will not send the e-mail.
    but Outlook does connect to the internet, but not my e-mail account.

    So it is either their problem which I doubt because they would have had a flood of complaints & fixed it or your account has not been set up properly. One typo & it will not work. Check your account setup.
