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: dmarc.org .
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.
I spent the day unable to log in to Verizon's incoming or outgoing email servers.
Some time ago, I received an email from Verizon instructing me to change server names and port numbers.
Originally I had used incoming.verizon.net and outgoing.verizon.net.
The email instruction was to change the incoming server to pop3.verizon.net and the outgoing server to smtp.verizon.net which I did. Things have worked swimmingly for many months.
I checked email client setup instructions on Verizon's site which also used the "new" server names I just described. All other settings (SSL authentication and port numbers) were also correct per the web site instructions.
This evening I reluctantly downloaded Verizon's "agent" (software which has usually crashed or locked up my system in the past). This time the agent software ran OK and succeeded in changing the client settings and logging onto Verizon's email server.
The only change that the software made to the client settings were: the incoming server name is incoming.verizon.net and the outgoing server name is outgoing.verizon.net.
Here's an idea: Keep setup information posted on Verizon's web site up to date so that those of us reluctant to use buggy Verizon software can manage account setup manually.
Verizon needs to work on its spam filters. I have done all that I can with the settings provided; however, I still get a lot of spam in my inbox. Verizon, please follow the Yahoo! model. On my Yahoo! account, I get no spam in my inbox; it is all filtered into the spam folder. Does anyone else have the same problem?
I just transferred from cable to FIOS. One feature in cable internet that I miss is the option to choose print sizes before printing email messages. This is important when incoming messages use a fine print size or colored fonts that are not as sharp for reading in print. Any chance Verizon could add this?
How come the people who designed the new Verizon 3.0 decided to omit all Microsoft internet explorer versions from being able to be used to sign in to your Email account? You have done some questionable things in the past but this one takes the cake. It took me 4 calls to CS (got hung up on once) and almost 5 hours before I was finally told that if I wished to sign in to check my Email I would need to download and install firefox browser. The tech then took over my computer and proceeded to change all kind of settings which will take many hours and days to get things back the way they were. Seems like what needed to be done was to put an announcement on the home page or send an Email to let your customers know that you were no longer going to be able to sign in using IE before the change to 3.0 took place. So much for good customer relations.
When I log into MyVerizon, it appears I get a secure connection (https). However, when I click on Email, it appears to go back to a non-secure connection (http). Can we get a secure connection even for email?
Also, could we get a direct and secure link to our email? I currently use: http://webmail.verizon.net/signin/ to go right into my email and would like to see a secure (https) equivalent.
The Verizon home page contains a link to an unusually long list of phishing attempts on Verizon email. It would be helpful for Verizon to periodically send out email notices of current phishing attempts in addition to this very long list. It would keep users up-to-date and safe from the phishing attempts.
Configure Verizon Webmail back to where if you read a message it goes to the next message and automatically opens to where you can read it. Instead of going after you delete the read message, back to the list of complete emails that remain open. Whoever thought of this should be fired! CHANGE IT BACK! I want somebody calling me back to assure that it will go back to the old way of doing that. Also still get a not supported method after signing into the Email & more overview pop up box that appears & you have to go back & hope it works the next time which still IS NOT FIXED! . And get somebody to reviews this and fix it
For the past several months I have received a lot of spam. It shows up every day and ALL of it comes from the .INFO domain. I have marked all of it as spam with little success. I have forwarded all of it to email@example.com. That too has been a futile attempt to stop the spam. My suggestion is to add a user option to the spam detector to flag ALL emails from the .info domain as spam. You can control if detected spam is immediately deleted or sent to a spam folder. If you send it to the spam folder you could review emails to determine if too much is being flagged as spam.
Currently, filters are set up by options of From, Subject, To and CC.
I am constantly getting messages from bogus employers. I would like to set up a filter that states any email with the word JOB in it will be marked spam. Other web-based mail offers this option. Please implement this so I can stop the onslaught of spam!
I've had to make numerous filters just to keep my friends from being marked spam, and even so, they still end up in the spam detector. Sure wish you'd improve this feature!
The title pretty much describes it all. I have an Android an was browsing the Android Market looking for FiOS apps and I came across the Verizon FiOS Digital Voice app. The app was incredible. It integrated with all of my contacts on my phone and it allowed me to do everything that I was able to do via PC. I'd love to see this on the iOS front. I have a couple mobile Apple devices (iPad, iPod Touch) and was disappointed not to see this. Additionally, if you guys do decide to implement this idea can it be integrated into the FiOS Mobile apps. I think it'd be much neater if everything was in one place. Currently you have to download a DVR manager app, and remote app. I don't think we should add on to this. Also I think My Verizon should be fully integrated into the FiOS Mobile apps instead of having to go to m.verizon.com.
Additionally, verizon.net email integration would be cool to add into the Verizon mobile apps. Comcast has all of the features above and it's really neat.
