If you still use a Cox e-mail address, I encourage you to consider the following questions: What are you going to do, if you ever switch to Verizon? You know you can’t take the Cox account with you? Do you have any friends whose e-mail addresses changed from, for example: email@example.com to firstname.lastname@example.org? What a pain! I imagine you also receive a lot of large files. Did you know Cox only allows 2GB of storage? There’s nothing more annoying than receiving a reply e-mail from the ISP (Internet Service Provider) that kicks back an “over-quota error”, especially if he’s an attorney. Last, how do you keep your e-mails organized across multiple devices? Cox and Verizon only allow for POP e-mail. You can’t sync POP e-mail across multiple devices – smartphone, tablet, laptop, and desktop.
And, oh – do you have any friends that pay monthly for an AOL account? I think over 2.5 million people still do. Just FYI, they don’t have to pay to keep their AOL e-mail account.
