Today I logged in to my customer account with Cox Communications and tried to add another email user account there. They used to let us have 5 email user accounts as a part of our internet service. I was keeping the last one on reserve for use with a new Mastadon server that I am setting up. When the Cox web interface wouldn’t let me add the new user, I called Cox. Cox is allowing those who have existing email accounts to keep them for now. But no new or existing internet service customers will ever be able to get new Cox e-mail addresses going forward. Apparently, Cox doesn’t want to be in the email business at all anymore.
From what I can tell, Cox is a leading ISP in at least ten US states. Maybe Purism might pick up some of those residential type of customers for the Librem Email service.
The librem one email seems like a good option for people who don’t like being spied on. Does anyone here know if the Librem email is reliable and always up?
