Re: Mail server for "" unreachable for too long

Message 21 of 23

If somegirl is correct that and use separate mail servers, AND if your mom is having problems (as am I) with, then obviously the problem is with, despite all the claims of their support group.


When my e-mail handle got inadvertently wiped out last January, it took me over three weeks of e-mails, phone calls, chats, etc. to make someone at VZ even understand what my problem was, let alone fix it. I wish the scripts VZ puts in front of its support crew would all vanish into cyberspace, so the support people would then have to actually listen to your problem and then THINK about it before reading from some **bleep** canned response.


I've had for almost 5 years now. The first year - I was on DSL that year - their service was flawless. My problems with began after a couple of years into my FiOS experience. No matter; my e-mail account never changed. But VZ's reliability for its mail servers has suffered somehow.

I'm also having this problem, but strictly on the receiving side.  I belong to a number of Yahoo groups and have the mail sent to one of Verizon addresses.  For the past week or so, I've been getting maybe 2 in 5 of the emails posted to the groups.  I have tried whitelisting Yahoo Group, but that hasn't helped.


The error message is appearing in the Yahoo Groups page when I review my membership.


Any suggestions?

The same thing is happening to a neighbor of mine.  He has been getting these messages for several years now.  He can forward the bounced message to me at the same address and it goes through.  Also, he sends several messages a week with no problem... ???  I don't have any forwarding setup and I don't believe my neighbor does either.


Here is the latest bounced message:

Has anyone got any ideas why this is still happening?
