Outlook can not connect to incoming server

Message 1 of 2
(647 Views)

I have had problems with Outlook 2007 collecting email from Verizon for the last few days.  I am using the newer server settings:

 

pop.verizon.net

smtp.verizon.net

 

SSL enabled, port 995 for incoming and 465 for out going.

 

I can send email from this account in outlook, but not receive.   I also tried on a Kindle and it also can not connect to the verizon server.

 

Any ideas what I'm doing wrong, or is verision having server issues?

 

Thanks

Steve

I was finally able to send email by going into Outlook account setting and click more settings and under the outgoing server tab :

 

Check the box - My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication

 

Check - Log on using:

(Fill in your username and password)

 

Check the box - Require Secure Password Authentication

 

To think Verizon could not figure this out and tried to get me to pay a third party for help really angers me!  I hope this works for you too!
