Cox and the FCC wireless list
On Nov 20, Cox added a number of domains to the FCC Wireless domain list. One of the domains added was cox.net. This caused understandable consternation among a number of senders, as the opt-in requirements for wireless domains are much more stringent than for sending to non-wireless domains.
Earlier today, Tom Bartel, from Return Path tweeted: “We pinged them – likely error -they are on it – keep an eye on the FCC listing for an update.”
So it appears that the listing was most likely unintentional (and I’m hearing around the industry that someone from Cox have confirmed that it was a mistake) and they will be removing the domain from the list soon.
