Cox provides its Internet / Email customers with an email address that has their User ID in it. The User ID is all of the text and punctuation preceding the @ symbol of the email address.
Example: If your selected email address is email@example.com, then User ID is anyname45.here
Note: The User ID is not case sensitive. Selecting upper or lower case letters cannot make the login fail.
