Cox Email services are a part of Cox Communication (also known as Cox Cable), which is known to be the third-largest cable television provider in the United States. Not only does Cox Cable provide cable television services but also it deals in telecommunications and home automation services. When you buy any of these services or their combination, you are also provided a Cox email account. You can use this Cox email account for sending and receiving emails and manage the service you have bought from Cox Communication. You can access your Cox email account not only through a web browser but can also configure it on a third-party email client such as Microsoft Outlook. However, to carry out the configuration process, you will need to know the Cox Email Server Settings.
