Migrated to mail.aol.com last year.  Everything worked fine until last week. Now the incoming Verizon server does not recognize my user name!  I am wondering if the alias no longer works.  What to do?  I can still log in to AOL directly, but no through Thunderbird.

I was migrated to AOL just before Verizon sold its Verizon assets to Frontier.  Two years ago?  I use Thunderbird for email on my PC.  So it works.

 

Check your url, port, and SSL.  Id should include @verizon.net.  Recently they were changing servers around and a few were not working correctly.
