I received an email instructing me to use the following settings for Outlook email accounts:
I made the changes, and my email didn't work.
I restored the old settings (incoming port 110, outgoing 587, no encryption) and it works fine.
Does anyone have any idea why these new settings are supposedly required?

I'm not mad. It's Verizon, after all, so I'm not even surprised that it doesn't work.
My former email settings work, and that's good enough for me. It ain't broke, so I ain't going to "fix" it.
If it stops working, then we'll see about those new settings ...
The settings did not work for me either, the first few times I tried. The first part of the email did not give enough detailed information to make all the settings necessary to make it work. If you scroll down and pick your particular software, you will get detailed information ton ALL the settings you need to make. I use Outlook 2007, and clicking on that link and following the step-by-step instructions was the only way I was able to make it work. Now if I could only get these changes to work on my iPhone.....anyone?
Got the new e-mail from Verizon to change settings but they don't work. Checking outgoing messages works but receiving mail has errors and doesn't work. Changed back and all is working. Mail has been slow sending/receiving for the past several weeks, not sure if this is related.
The new settings are working in Mozilla Thunderbird 9.0.1, but it has made retrieving mail painfully slow. A simple test message from one verizon.net e-mail address to my primary one took several minutes to transmit. Checking takes a minute or two alone while it simply sits here waiting to connect to incoming.verizon.net...
