@Fixed my POP mail on my iphone by deleting the account and only using my username (without @verizon.net) The iphone app automatically chose port 587 for smtp and 995 for POP. Hope that helps.
note you should change the port to 465 and SSL so that your outgoing email is secure. AOL may be allowing unsecured traffic, but Verizon wasn't.
@Looking at my settings in Thunderbird, I have POP set to use firstname.lastname@example.org and SMTP set to just userid. Not sure what caused me to make that change, but it was some sort of problem last year. I know that Yahoo userids (which mine never was) had to use @verizon.net.

I've had the same problem starting on exactly the same date- 2/8/2016. I've tried to get answers from Microsoft, but they have not helped. I think this is a Verizon incoming mail problem and I wish someone at Verizon would take care of it. As a workaround I am using Verizon.net for my incoming mail but Outlook .com for everything else (outgoing mail, calendar, contacts). What a pain! If you find a solution, please post.

I am now receiving all of my verizon email in my outlook.com inbox. It is not going to the pop3 verizon folder which they were going to in the past. is there a different server name now?

I have exactly the same issue. But as long as I can reply to my outlook.com emails using my verizon,net email address (a dropdown arrow option available when you send mail from Outlook.com) the issue does not bother me. In fact, I kind of like it this way.

What folder does it go to? Yes the servers real names are apparently different if not really different servers. They now have AOL names although the DNS records for the old name still exists as an alias.
Default Server: router.asus.com

All my verizon emails are now going to my outlook.com inbox. They were originally going to a verizon folder.
My server setup is pop.verizon.net port 995
stmp.verizon.net port 465
This stopped working after 2/8. I did stasrt to receive my verizon emails again a few days ago, but they are now all going to my outlook inbox instead of the seperate folder I have created.

Just checked back on this issue - went to my hotmail and saw up to date email in my @verizon folder there - didn't do a thing but it started back on its own.....there was a gap from about 2/8 to 2/23....
