I would like to see the ability to select several emails and click a "filter messages like these" button/option and then have the system auto-detect what those messages have in common to start building an email filter.


Gmail has this available, and it is how I build 99% of my filters there.


For example:

- If I selected five message from, it would auto-fill that email address and set the filter to "From matches:"

- If I selected nine messages with the subject line This is a Really Cool Email, it would auto-fill the Subject and set the filter to "Subject matches: This is a Really Cool Email."

- If I selected three message with the same sender and the same subject, it would give me the choice to filter based on the subject or the sender. (Gmail allows to filter when both match, but Verizon currently doesn't.)


From there, it would redirect to the Filters page (with the beginning of the filter already pre-set) and allow you to choose what to do with those messages.


This is much easier than the current setup, where filters are on a completely different page from the email messages, and require bouncing back and forth between the two in order to make sure filters match exactly.

Thanks for the suggestion, Somegirl- I'm going to pass it along to the proper team within Verizon and see what they say.

Currently the verizon web mail seems to only use SSL for the login credentials. I get to the SSL login page with URL:

SSL login


Please improve the web mail so the entire session is SSL encrypted so email can be checked more securely in public.

Design of Email

Status: Acknowledged
by PatriceDW on ‎11-27-2012 01:12 PM

I've notice someone changed the already pathetic design of the email page. My monitor is 9 inches tall and we're given less than 3 1/2 inches of screen to view our emails. Verizon gets 5 inches for their crap.  And try finding the 'pay your bill' section.... oops NOT THERE ! The freebie email sites (AOL, MSN,...) give you much more space. Someone needs to be replaced !  If this doesn't get fixed, me and my money are leaving! Anyone Else???

It would be great if Verizon updated its email server security certificates when they expire.  I have been getting warnings for over a month.  Given that Verizon has no problem reminding folks when payments are due, it seems that the basic underlying maintenance functions that we pare paying for should be taken care of timely.  Way to go in making Verizon customers safe and secure using the services we pay for.

Thanks for pointing this out. Your input has been funneled to the email team.

Email time limit

Unless I missed something and I have searched for a way to resolve it, it is really a PAIN when logged on and typing replies, all of sudden the session times out and you lose all data.

Why can't an option be provided that when the session is getting ready to time out, you are prompted a warning and asked if you wish to either stay logged in or save your data?


I have sometimes had to put together a reply using Word and then log on and paste it in.


If there is some opion in email to fix this, please advise.

For those of us using PC's or Laptops the option to move or copy folders and/or individual emails to a local hard drive would be excellent. If users would get in the habit of using such a function it could be a win win. From VZ's side it could potential free up huge amounts of storage space. For users instead of having to setup 3rd party clients (which can be a daunting task for some) to accomplish this; the option to do this from the present web interface would make a lot of happy people in situations where they do not have web access.

With the recent removal of POP3 support from the Windows Mail app in Windows 8, the only options to check our email is either via MyVerizon or forwarding them to another email service such as Gmail or Hotmail/, neither of which are acceptable. One of these scenarios needs to happen for Windows 8 users who wish to use Windows 8's Mail client with email


1.) A MyVerizon app for Windows 8 which includes (but is not limited to) the ability to check email in-app (Seems to be the easiest and more cost-effective for Verizon, and allows them to serve their ads to give themselves a little revenue to offset the cost of development/maintenance)

2.) Exchange ActiveSync and/or IMAP support as soon as practial, either as a free service or an add-on for a small fee per month. (While Verizon has already ruled IMAP as not likely, I have not seen anything as yet regarding EAS)

Stop contacting me with bill payment e-mails. I just received the second one of the day. My bill is due on August 27. Today is August 8. Stop sending me annoying, pestering bill payment notices.

Spam blocking

Status: Acknowledged
by jimbailey on ‎08-05-2012 01:28 PM - last edited on ‎08-05-2012 01:43 PM by Moderator

I have my e-mail forwarded into Outlook Express.  However, when I go to the web for my e-mail account, which I do regularly to delete e-mail, I am given a choice to label a message (or several) as "spam."  I do so mark a number of e-mails as spam, i.e., anything from {edited for privacy}  Marking it as spam should automatically add the ema of the sender into the blocked senders list.  Otherwise, it's a multiple step process to add an ema manually.


{edited for privacy}

As you know, the spam problem is not just huge, it is debilitating!!

It affects all of us.

As an e-mail provider, there is an implied responsibility to make the user experience tolerable.


Specifically, since the Verizon SPAM tools are NOT implemented with a simple user in mind AND are NOT implemented in a "seamless manner"**, there is a genuine need for improvements.


For these reasons, I have been using the "message rules" in my Outlook Express for a long time to at least make a dent in the spam I get. I felt I had better control with this than using Verizon tools.


I am now in a position where I need to transfer some 120+ message rules and God knows how many blocked senders to the Verizon Spam Detector FILTERS.

Doing so will allow me to:

1) Not having to spend months to do this manually, which is totally prohibitive.

2) Make the message rules independent of the E-mail client I use (upgrading etc.).

3) Make my spam experience such that at least I think I can keep pace with it, let alone solve it!


Implementing this at Verizon could be as simple as getting the code that already exists from Microsoft under an appropriate agreement (perhaps even as a suitable application), tailoring it to the Verizon specifics and by doing so making a HUGE step forward in lowering user frustration with existing Verizon support in this regard.



The Spam detector screens, eplanations, guides, Chat client etc. are all geared toward the very people who developed and implemented them. I know this may sound overly critical, but we are not all "propeller heads"!

This entire set of tools needs to be critically reviewed and ADJUSTED for the average user.

For God's sake, I'll even offer my services, if desired, to help bring this about!


Sincerely, yours

Select All deletion option

Status: Acknowledged

It would be great if there was a "select all" option in the verizon email account so that I can delete emails all at once without having to select each email then delete in bulk.

Please implement the ability to filter based on more than on condition.


An example of when this would be useful: That friend/family member that always forwards the chain emails full of animated glittery butterflies/rainbows/puppies with the "forward this to 20 people and you'll get your wish" taglines.


I would like to be able to set up a filter something like this:


If From matches and Subject contains Fwd: Fwd: Fwd: then send message to Spam.


This means that legitimate emails from that person with real information in them will not be blocked, and multi-forwarded messages from other people will not be blocked.

Thank you for the suggestion. I'll pass it along to the email team within Verizon.

Verizon should participate with DMARC . . .

Status: Acknowledged
by Bolt on ‎01-31-2012 06:02 AM

I couldn't find any press release or other indication that Verizon email service has agreed to participate with DMARC to verify that incoming messages purporting to be from participating banks and other companies (such as PayPal) are authentic.  Verizon could also participate as a sender of messages since it is possible that its sender domain will be spoofed by phishers.  Information about DMARC is here: .


Is Verizon participating in either capacity?  If not, does it have an intention to do so?  If not, my idea is:  PARTICIPATE, and help make email safer for all of us.
