I am having trouble establishing linking my Verizon e-mail account to Windows Mail.  I can set up the account, but get the error 0x800CCC90 incorrect password entered every time I try to sync.  I am using the same name and password that I use to access the Verizon Yahoo account directly.  Any ideas?

Since you mention that it's a Verizon/Yahoo account, make sure that your servers are set to:

 

Incoming (pop3): incoming.yahoo.verizon.net

Outgoing (smtp): outgoing.yahoo.verizon.net

 

The normal Verizon pop servers won't work for accounts partnered with Yahoo. Hope this helps!
