I recently received an email from Verizon directing me to a website to update my email server settings. I'm 99% sure this was a genuine Verizon email so I tried their suggestions to change my POP3 and Outgoing server names and port numbers. The new settings DO NOT work - either outgoing or incoming. So I set them back the way they were.
If you were trying to activate SSL on the 1/5-1/6 then the problem was with some Verizon servers.
It should work again now.
The reason for using SSL is that your mail is then sent/received encrypted. Without SSL its all in the clear between you and Verizon's servers. Its particularly important to use SSL if you are not always using your home connections, e.g. from Laptops and other portable devices.
Only difference in the settings should be the port numbers and the SSL setting.
Various people have mentioned running into problems and solved them by.
Reviewing and correcting mistakes in their settings
Closing and reopening their Mail program.
For certain devices, restarting their devices
Checking their firewall settings
Increasing the timeout value in their mail program
One known problem introduced by using SSL is that many SPAM detectors no longer work. At least one that works requires that you leave the mail settings in your mail program alone, but then configure the change instead into the anti-SPAM program. I.e, it with communicate with SSL but the mail program within your machine receives in the clear.
