That email address, http://webmail.verizon.com just kicks me back to the main Verizon page. I am not able to access that address.
I am a Verizon-Yahoo customer and access my email via the Yahoo mail app on my tablet. Is that good enough?
Another obtuse, confusing, and upsetting email announcing a new policy, with no way to ask clarifying questions or contact anyone at Verizon who knows anything about this.
Another thing to have to stress over. Thanks for nothing, Verizon.
Don't worry about that page. Just check out their policy: verizon.com/emailpolicy and you'll see that you only have to fetch your email in any of the ways that you already do.
If you don't fetch your email regularly, then they'll want o get rid of your un accessed account eventually.

Do we get a reduction in monthly charges for removal of the email account - I've never used in in 5 years.
SURE,THe same discount for the amount they charged that you got for the prior retirement of the Personal Web Page service and USENET(NEWSGROUP) servers.
All these services are considered free extras, with no obligation for them to continue them in the future.
I just spoke to Verizon rep and they don't have anything other that that text so are as confused as us.... my reading is should be OK if email client is logging in but I guess seems we will not know for sure..... until 180days.
Also no mention of sub accounts used for just FiOS TV online.... so assuming OK
Lots of assumptions
Change to Verizon.net Email Policies:
The Verizon.net Email Policies have been removed from verizon.com/emailpolicy, and replaced with the notice below:
We no longer offer verizon.net email service, and have previously notified all verizon.net email customers of the need to immediately migrate their email to the AOL platform (to maintain their verizon.net email address) or a third party platform. Please see the Frequently Asked Questions at verizon.com/email for additional information.
All migrations must be completed before December 5, 2017.
After this date, any remaining verizon.net email accounts will be subject to deletion and will not be accessible in any way. This means:
Verizon.net email customers who have previously chosen Yahoo as their portal partner are not impacted by this change and may continue to maintain their verizon.net email address on the Yahoo platform, subject to their Terms of Service with Yahoo.
