Recently lost ability to receive email  at alias email address  (alias@verizon.net) connected to main email account (main@verizon.net).   Is this caused by retirement of Verizon email and is any alternative available?

You guessed correctly.  You got caught rather lae in the game  - I lost my other@verizon.net account almost immediately.  It was of little consequence.

If you really want to preserve the address, contact the guys at FastMail.com and and explain the situation to them  They will answer emails even though you are not subscribed.  They may be able to help.  I am about to transfer to them for a seaparate reason.  Other than that, I have no relationship w/ FastMail

Hi all - looks like I have stopped receiving email to an email alias I created. How might I go about resuming getting email? The alias was my primary email address.

Welcome to the club. Started happening to me on Feb. 20. Long-used verizon email alias no long works through verizon-yahoo mail, either one the web or in Mail app. Several reports of same on the Yahoo forums. Sending to the verizon alias address generates an immeidate "no such user" bounce. Supposedly Yahoo "engineers" are working on the problem. Sorry, but the mere phrase "yahoo engineer" does not inspire confidence in a good outcome.
