As a test, can you add the Verizon account to the stock Microsoft Email app to see if it yields better results? 🤔

Good Evening,

I had my verizon.net email (aol) account running smoothly on my Outlook 2007 client. The Outlook client stopped downloading mail a couple weeks ago. I am having a heck of a time setting up my verizon.net email account back to using it on my Outlook client. I looked at this Create and manage third-party app passwords - AOL Help

and unfortunately it did not help.

I feel like such an idiot as I used to be pretty good at this stuff.

Thanks to anyone who wants to assist.

When I went through the process of resolving the issue for my computers, I remember seeing a list of services that the changes one could select from. I think Outlook was on the list.

 

I, myself, use the native Microsoft & Samsung Email apps to access my verizon.net & aol.com accounts. Outlook is reserved for my outlook.com accounts.

Hello,

 

I have some questions about this AOL generated password.

Is one supposed to use it for both incoming and outgoing server?

AOL instructions refer to this password as a one-time use, but at what point does one switch back?

Which password does one use to access one's e-mail via the AOL-Mail webpage?

How is this different than AOL requiring Verizon/AOL users to change their password?

 

Thanks,

I would just like to say "thank you"! I had not had any problems with my email client until January 4th when emails stopped loading. I added my account to 2 other email clients and couldn't get them to load. Then I came across this forum. I don't remember ever receiving any info about a 3rd party password, but it worked. As soon as I used it the emails started pouring in. Thank you all again!

From what I read the password is good in your email client until you disconnect it from aol or delete the program, etc. Then you would have to set up a new one. You continue to use your actual password when logging on to aolmail. This is just a behind the scenes password in the account setup of your email client.
