How can I to change my Yahoo password for my Verizon.net email account? 


Every time I follow the Yahoo prompts, I end up where I change my verizon password - NOT my Yahoo account.  And i can't seem to find my Yahoo account information to add an alternate account.  It's like chasing my tail and I never get anywhere I need to be.


Please help...

I've been having the same trouble.  I can log in to Verizon with my username and password.  I can get to my Yahoo mail from there without an additional login.


Trying from a client is failing.  same username and password


Tried name@verizon.net + Password

name + password


 Account '***': Connecting to POP3 server: incoming.yahoo.verizon.net...

..Actually after finding some other issues similar to mine, I contacted the online chat support.  The Verizon server did not have yahoo as my mail option.  It was apparent to the online chat person that I "obviously" did as Nagaraj could see it on my screen. The Email server folks updated my account and the logins/password was synced between Yahoo & Verizon.


There doesn't seem to be a user-initiated workaround..This must be done via support updates to your account.  But once this was done, I was/am good to go.


I was very pleased with the person at the other end of chat for a Saturday morning - didn't make me go through all sorts of hoop-jumping to get a resolution  - NICE!  Not the "typical" support chat experience I envisioned.
