Re: [AR] Unable to login to Web Mail

Disagree. I use webmail extensively when I travel. Why would I want to create another email account with another provider or install another email client when webmail works fine 95% of the time.

Google, Mail.com etc have web based clients. ISP's should focus on internet and raising the caps while we become more connected. You don't need Cox to provide email. If a customer wants it, let them pay for it.

If Cox dropped email, I'm willing to bet you'd be one of the first in line to say you were getting robbed and should get a price reduction since they took something away or a similar rant.

If the ISP offers email and a web client interface, it should work and members should be comfortable coming here for help.

If you choose not to use your ISP's email, that's all well and fine, too.

Just don't force us to have it (as they do now..) if a person wants to opt out, that's their business..

The client is faster and reliability is better plus it can check your mail at specified intervals.

Client software, in my experience, is no faster, it has to load its "own stuff" before it checks for mail. With webmail I have to open my browser first. A client would have its own update schedule or security fixes that I would need to install. Yes a browser has them as well but I would have to install them even if I had a client. Reliability is not an issue; 95% with webmail is fine. I can not think of one instance where the world would end if I did not send or receive an email.

Email is a part of the internet, it was one of the first uses. Following your line of thought: Many of us don't need higher caps. If a customer wants them, let them pay for them. Why should the "average" user subsidize the high use customers?

You don't have to use webmail - I don't have to use all of my data allowance. In both cases, it is there if we need it.
