    How can I make sure I receive a email on my iPhone but also on my desktop computer in Thunderbird ?

    I basically want to make sure 2 copies of my email happen of the same message. I like keeping emails on my computer as well.

    Should I even setup email on iPhone if I want this ?

    Yes. Cox supports IMAP. I have Cox too. Set up on all my devices.

    When you setup the account set it as IMAP.

    With Cox the account name is your email address.

    Receiving Server is: imap.cox.net
    Sending Server is: smtp.cox.net

    For receiving Cox uses SSL authentication (your username and password) on port 993.
    For sending Cox uses the same on port 587.

    Difference of pop3 vs IMAP.

    Be aware that IMAP require more server space, since it keeps everything on the server.

    Cox gives you about a gig of space or more. Hopefully OP doesn't have more than that.

    Even if it isn't, he can likely set up a redirection in webmail to another cloud account with plenty of free server-space like gmail. Doing so, I have ported a few people away from servers with limited/expensive storage, without them having to notify anybody.

    I also got cox and I get my emails on both iPhone and my pc.
    If I delete the email on my iPhone it deletes and never arrives on the computer.
    If I leave it in the inbox it gets downloaded on the pc when I check email.

    POP is pretty much dead (and good riddance), but there was a setting to leave the mail on the server. In Apple Mail you unchecked the "Remove copy from server after receiving a message" box from the Advanced settings.
