Since the issue is on all of your email, and not JUST the Verizon email... I have to assume it is an issue local to your PC....


Your description is pretty vague, so I am not sure what the issue is, exactly...


best of luck with it

I appologize that you are having trouble contacting technical support. The number to get in contact with FiOS Technical Support is 888-553-1555, we are here 24/7 so please call at your leisure if you are having trouble and we'll be more than happy to help ya.


Although from yer description it sounds like the issue is in the outlook express (or whichever email client is setup) is not setup correctly. The smtp server requires authentication and there is a option in the mail settings to do this (Tools->accounts-> Select Mail Tab->Highlight the email account for verizon-> click properties-> click servers-> then at bottom there is a "My outgoing server requires authentication" box that needs to be checked.


Hope this helps, if not please call into the Techical support and we'll help you get it resolved.
