IMAP e-mail

Status: Not Likely
by mcaranci on ‎09-19-2010 06:23 PM

I understand that att.net offers its subscribers IMAP e-mail; why can't verizon.net do the same? POP3 is not where it's at anymore.

Status: Not Likely
We have strategically chosen POP3 Email architecture to minimize storage costs. Please know that each master email account has 2GB of storage and if the user does not POP their email, the email is accessible from anywhere with internet access via myverizon.com.

Before I vote for your post, where did you find that att.net offers IMAP e-mail?

 

For example, I went to https://www.wireless.att.com/support_static_files/KB/KB5892.html

 

But it does not say anything about IMAP for att.net

It says POP3 and SMTP.

This is a great idea.  We recent got Verizon FIOS TV/Internet, and it's hard to go back to POP email when one has had IMAP for years.

I fully agree. We need IMAP support for:

- multiple email folders
- checking for new mail from mutliple computers/phones (without having to use webmail)
- tagging messages (e.g., Starred, Important, To Do)

There's a good summary of how IMAP is superior to POP over at http://mail2web.com/blog/2010/02/pop-imap-difference/

If Verizon is worried about people storing too much email on the server, they can slap a quota on accounts.

This seems to be a frequently recurring request. I found six other posts asking for it when I was searching Google for "verizon imap" before coming here.

I just got FiOS installed today, and the tech seemed surprised that I wanted to set up a Verizon email account. He said most people use gmail. Now I know why.

Oh, and can we make it SSL (or at least STARTTLS) too so passwords aren't publicly readable?

Thanks for the link dslr595148; I'll vote for that one too.

I am content with POP3.

 

However I would like a secure transmission of my password

Is this already supported?  The instructions I found said to use incoming.yahoo.verizon.net, but if there is already a working IMAP server at mail.verizon.com, it should be better publicized on the mail settings page.

Imap sounds like a good idea.  Is there another way to mange emails on computers and smart phones that doesn't require reading & deleting on each device?
