    Hi I just recently got an ipad with retina
    Display. I've had an iPhone for several years. I do have a question though I read earlier that cox only let's you send email from your home network. But I connect through wifi at home and cannot send from here either. I use another email address and it works fine just frustrating.
    Yes the web based ones work fine. Sorry I reported here but I don't have the plus sign anywhere to respond with a new message

    Well, welcome to the forum! :) Maybe some more specific details will help: 1) What email address works fine (I'm assuming a web-based one such as Yahoo or Gmail)? and 2) How have you setup your other account - I would assume that if you have the proper Cox POP3 or IMAP incoming mail servers & the correct SMTP outgoing server addresses, then you should be able to receive/send your emails - let us know if any of this makes sense and whether you have further questions - Dave
