Because the pop.verizon.net server does not support encrypted passwords, the maintainers of the Mozilla Thunderbird email client automatically configure Thunderbird to use the old incoming.verizon.net server instead of the pop.verizon.net server. Please see https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=839494 for details.
I love my verizon email account. One suggestion - it would be great if there were better syncing of the email account with Smart devices. That way when I delete an email on my Smart phone, for example, it also deletes on my verizon email account. Also, the email folders I create in my verizon email account also appear on my Smart device.
Verizon On Line really needs to upgrade their Verizon.net email service in a big way. All the other email services out there which are free by the way, out perform VOL by leaps and bounds in bandwidth/throughput or whatever the technical term is for speed. For the most part, VOL email is about 1/3 the speed of Yahoo, Gmail and Hotmail/Live/Outlook especially when using client email software such as Outlook, Outlook Express, Windows Live Mail, Thunderbird and so forth.
This has been an issue for the past 2 years however, earlier this year 2013, VOL did improve some of the server performance after it had hit bottom when they changed the server names from incoming/outgoing to pop3/smtp. They still have much expansion and upgrading to do just to keep up with free email services out there which seems a bit backwards for those who pay for VOL service and get less performing email than the freebies.
So I just go the word that MSN Premium will stop being my ISP portal for my verizon/MSN email accounts, unless I pay more for MSN Premium.
I suppose this is because Verizon wants the ad space/revenue. The only thing is when I went to log on, I get an error message that is not decipherable (may be user/password error, but who can tell????)
BRING BACK MY MSN for FREE. I pay enough for the service that I do not deserve to be nickled and dimed like this.
BAD IDEA. The $2 fee to pay your bill didn't work, so let's try this!!!
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.
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.

I am the only one who use my computer and accesses my email. The need to continually sign in is annoying. The "remember me for 2 weeks" option does not work. I was told by your phone service rep, that it's because I access my e-mail from my phone and Ipad. This is ridiculous. Let us choose me choose if I want automatic access to email or need to login.
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???
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.
- If I selected five message from firstname.lastname@example.org, it would auto-fill that email address and set the filter to "From matches: email@example.com."
- 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.
