don't give up Apple people just return to previous incoming mail settings.
i've been a Apple Mail user for years. tried the new settings and so far only outgoing worked. like many others here changed the incoming port back to 110 and disabled SSL. now back to receiving mail.
Please Verizon now that you have the iPhone hope you can look into this for us Mac people!!!!!!!!!

I changed mine back too and it is working fine now. Really frustrating that since I made the change as directed by Verizon in December, email was mostly received but at least once per hour the "Connection to the Server failed or was dropped" error occurred. Today's new error CONNECTION LIMIT REACHED FOR YOUR IP ADDRESS doesn't do much to help the situation.
Verizon's dismal support of mac users in ALL of their products makes me question whether FiOS is worth it.

Had the same experience with an iPhone 4S. Recently purchased an iPad Wi Fi and "ditto". Can receive email on the iPhone but "no habanero" on the iPad. Am getting the impression Verizon's new email server settings don't apply to Apple devices.

Verizon changed to different email server.
Make sure password for account is correct by resetting password:
Reset password by clicking "I cannot access my account link" on page or login below
Enter username here to reset password : https://signin.verizon.com/sso/forgotflows
Passwords must match for verizon yahoo & verizon account.
Here are the email server settings that work for me on iMac or iPad using Mac Mail program
Name: john smith
user name: john smith (Do not use full email address here)
Incoming Mail Server: incoming.yahoo.verizon.net
SSL: on (Port 995)
Outgoing Mail Server: outgoing.yahoo.verizon.net
SSL: on (Port 465)
Password: current password for account
Save all settings and check for new email. Good luck.

I really dislike Verizon and their lack of mac support. I changed per instructions and no emails incoming or outgoing. Tried everything mentioned but still wont work. If I didnt live in the country and had access to other Internet services, I wouldnt do verizon.
