Today (Feb 28, 2017) I received a notice to make a choice about my verizon.net email address. However, the deadline date was missing! The email said "Effective null, we'll no longer provide verizon.net email service." The web version showed "Effective $LASTDATE, we'll no longer ...". Could somebody kindly let me know what that date is so that I can effectively choose from the various options?
Also, if I were to keep my verizon.net email address, can I still use a POP (or SMTP) client (such as Apple "Mail" or "Thunderbird", or a phone app) to access it? Don't really want to use a webmail interface if I can help it.
