Just stumbled onto this thread. Have been struggling with intermittent SMTP issues for several weeks, and completely stumped. Has anyone found a workaround? I can't believe Verizon would do this. I've been a loyal FIOS customer since they first introduced the service - I was one of the first customers in the state. But this is completely unacceptable. Many of us use a different domain for email.
In general you can use reply to as a different valid email address.
People with Business account should be able to negotiate something with Verizon.
This is still broken Verizon. I have been unable to send email for MONTHS because of this screw up. Still waiting on you to return our service. This has been a huge inconvenience. Worst customer service ever, a fact of which everyone is already well aware. Just thought it warrants repeating in this situation.
However the return/reply address does not have to be that.
End of story - Sort of solved.
