Thanks for the info.  My email stopped working as of 7:00 pm on 5/19.  As reported...Windows Live Mail and iPhone email no longer working...only through webmail.  You would think this would be a priority to Verizon?

Things got back to normal here late yesterday afternoon and are still working as of this morning (5/22/14 ).

 

It would seem there should be a way to notify customers by a mass emailing that there is a Verizon problem. I spent two hours trying to fix what I thought was a problem with my computer. Shamefull.

Thunderbird spontaneously became unable to connect to Verizon pop/smtp servers, ports 995/465. Verizon webmail still works ok.

 

Fix?

Similar issue here.  Verizon's outgoing.verizon.net started getting really slow about two weeks ago and exceeded the fixed timeouts for Thunderbird and Mac Outlook 2011. The only thing that can still send successfully is Windows Outlook, which allows the SMTP timeout to be set manually (works for us at 1m). Port selection makes no difference. Anything with a low timeout will fail with an SMTP timeout.

 

I don’t have time to deal with Verizon support, so will likely switch to our hosting provide or Google for outgoing.

You should be switched to smtp.verizon.net instead of outgoing.verizon.net as well as pop.verizon.net instead of incoming.verizon.net by now.  The old servers are going going ...
