POP settings

Message 1 of 2

The long-awaited switch from Verizon Yahoo to Verizon -Yahoo has finally happened.  And I don't care for the Verizon interface.  So I thought I'd just forward my Verizon mail.  Only the tool that I scrounged up somewhere on the site triggers a 404-type page, and I don't see any listing of what the mail server's address is.


So.  What's the address for the Verizon mail server?

For the sake of example, we are going to pretend that we are setting up fictional account "fakeacct@verizon.net" and the password for logging into that account in webmail is "fakepassword" - Again, this is a fictitious account for the sake of an example.

The settings for using Verizon's servers would be:
Incoming Server: incoming.verizon.net
Server Requires Authentication: Yes
Username: fakeacct
Password: fakepassword
Requires a Secure Connection (SSL): No
Port: 110

Outgoing Server: outgoing.verizon.net
Server Requires Authentication: Yes (You can set it to use the same settings as incoming, or manually enter the username and password.)
Requires a Secure Connection (SSL): No
Port: 25 (although 587 also works.)
