the logo for Verizon is way too large and taking up my workable screen space. Also the verizon headers like servies etc ar way too large. This has only happened recently. Please reduce the size of these logos and headers to about 1/4 inch. I can adjust my headers and text fine but the set up from verizon email page is taking up way too much space that I need to work with my email efficently
The type should match that of residential, business, wireless that is at the head of the page. My account is with Verizon I don't need a big logo staring me in the face and I can read reasonalbe headings oint sizes. At least 1 inch to 1 1/2 screen space is being used by Verizon to advertise. Again I know who I am in contract with I don't need this huge logo and type at the top of my page.
Perhaps someone has made a mistake but I would think someone with Verizon would have noticed by now. I hope this gets corrected VERY SOON or I will have to go with another provider who put the customers needs first.

Numerous news articles are reporting that Verizon emails are not encrypted and are thus insecure -- unlike those generated by such free email services as Gmail (by contrast, I pay a lot for a Verizon FiOS bundle). For instance: http://washington.cbslocal.com/2014/06/03/google-only-half-of-emails-sent-to-gmail-users-are-shielde... . Here is Google's own report showing Verizon's insecure email traffic: http://www.google.com/transparencyreport/saferemail/#region=019 . The problem appears to be that Verizon does not implement the TLS protocol, or make it optional for email users. (Elsewhere it has been reported that at least some of Verizon's email servers do not offer the encrypted-password transmission option, which makes using email client software on non-secure wifi connections especially hazardous, and seems to be an entirely unecessary risk that could be eliminated through implementation of password encryption).
I have not found any similar response from Verizon yet, unless I've missed it. In this day, with the growing public awareness about the effect of government snooping on our privacy, I personally believe that any premier email provider should offer state-of-the-art access to those tools that are generally available elsewhere in the email market.
What do others think about this issue, and the desirability of Verizon acting promptly?
I am a new Verizon customer here in VA. I was relatively happy with Verizon service until I received the email about Understanding Your First Verizon Bill. It helpfully provided links to a video about Verizon bills in general, and a personalized video based on my own bill. I should say it would have been helpful if the links worked. Neither did, as they directed me to www.26verizon.com, which apparrently does not exist. When I manually deleted the "26," the address finally took me to the desired video. I can accept that human error happens to the best of us, but wouldn't you think that a rather large communications provider like Verizon could get something like this right the first time?
Verizon has offered a prepaid credit card to many new members upon signing a 2 year agreement. Which is great and for that I say thanks. Generally the way this process works is you sign up and within 61 days of service your prepaid card will begin being processed. At some point during this 60 days you will receive a letter informing you of this including a link to Verizon.com/rewards along with a username and password you can enter to "Simply" check the status of your reward. However Verizon recently started a new rewards program and it seems somewhere along the line someone decided that Verizon.com/rewards should be for the new member rewards program and no longer the link for checking your status of your prepaid card. The page that use to be located at this link Was a simple username and password field for entering the supplied username and password to check your status. The new page located at this link details the new members rewards program along with a member sign in using your account username and password not the supplied password you receive in the email or letter for checking card status. Additionally when I tried to call the number for rewards support located on the rewards page it said the lines are currently closed even though according to the business hours next to the number it says they should have been open another 4 hours. My idea is to fix the rewards link or make another link perhaps Verizon.com/rewardstatus and if you do already have a place that you can check the status then the letters and emails being sent out with instructions to simply go to Verizon.com/rewards and enter supplied username and password needs to be updated with the new password. Thanks for reading!
Currently, FiOS billing e-mails are sent from an account named "Verizon Notifications". This makes no sense and is confusing for people who have other Verizon services. For example, my wireless bills come from "Verizon Wireless". This account should be chnaged to "Verizon FiOS" to make it easier for people to distinguish your e-mails. Also, there's nothing in the greeting or body of the e-mail indicating that it's for FiOS - only the OnDemand advertisments at the bottom.
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!!!
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
