I actually have the @verizon.net as part of my user name.

 

Also, the same error occurs when I try to use outlook to access the email.

I was having the same issue and adding @verizon.net to my username worked!  Thanks for the advice.

I had the same problem using Thunderbird on my PC.  I added @verizon.net to my user name to fix the problem too.

 

It would have been nice if verizon or yahoo or whoever made this change had sent an email about this change prior to it happening to let us know ahead of time that we would need to do something about it.

OK that is progress.  Only wish this announcement had gone out yesterday, but getting it today is better than nothing.  How exactly would a user of Yahoo get this announcement?  I didn't see this in any emails and would not have seen it if I was not on this community forum today.

I can now access my email via Thunderbird.  I found a setting under Account settings/Server Setting that needed the "@verizon.net" added.

I use Outlook 2013 and your fix worked for me as well. (adding   verizon.net    to my user name).  Thank you.

 using outlook 2010

Was having the same issue where my email kept asking for password and said incoming server wasent working.

After much fiddling I called tech support and found the verizon customers that opted for the yahoo online expericence years back and still use the yahoo.verizon.net servers just need to make a small change to their user ID.

All you need do is include your full email address for your user name in the outlook settings.Thats it.

Tech support said it was a pemament fix for old verizon/yahoo users
