comment How to clear Exchange inbox?
Logging in to someone else's machine might work. I more or less tried that by spinning up Outlook in a Windows VirtualBox instance at home. It managed to open my inbox after a while, but then hangs regardless of the operation attempted.

comment How to clear Exchange inbox?
I have OWA configured to display (gasp) 100 messages per page. I suppose I could write a GreaseMonkey script that would tack on jQuery on OWA and bash away at the problem 100 emails at a time. Unfortunately, knowing the "stability" of OWA, this will probably become a very labor-intensive endeavor in no time.

Oh, well, this makes the whole picture different. You're getting crappy, albeit free, service. My previous provider (Cablevision) would give me crappy service for $50/month! Nevertheless, I think you'll have more luck if you call them and threaten to leave. Even though you're not paying for the crappy service now, being an actual customer carries some hope that you will pay in the future.

Let me explain for a moment why I'm mentioning a provider switch. Cox obviously has some fundamental technical as well as customer service issues. You've already gone to great lengths in your quest to solve some or all of those issues. While your efforts are commendable, you're in essence shining the turd that is Cox's infrastructure. Even if you were to resolve all of these problems, you would have done them a favor bigger than yourself. I don't know how else to put it. Run for the hills.

Is switching to another provider an option in your case? Does Cox have a virtual monopoly in your area? If that's not the case you can either (a) switch; or (b) threated Cox with a credible promise of switching in the near future unless your issues are resolved.

Here's another alternative. Depending on where you live, a site such as dslreports.com can have a significant number of users from your area that may or may not be having the same issues. I've had success in the past in debugging issues with DSL and cable ISPs here in Brooklyn using information from dslreports.com. At the very least you may be able to either correlate what you're seeing on your end with wider outages, or (at the other extreme) determine that your local equipment is solely at fault.
