Verizon Yahoo email

Message 1 of 12
(53,389 Views)

I have been using my verizon.net email through the Yahoo portal for many years... until yesterday. I had to get a new iphone and now I cannot access my email anymore. I have tried using my iphone as well as my laptop using

incoming.yahoo.verizon.net

outgoing.yahoo.verizon.net

Apple could not assist

Verizon Wireless could not assist

Yahoo could not assit and directs me back to Verizon landline.

How do I retrieve my Verizon Yahoo email???

There is another post here that shows those settings. https://forums.verizon.com/t5/High-Speed-Internet/POP-settings-for-Verizon-Yahoo-e-mail/td-p/144104

 

Maybe it is the signon and password you entered is case sensitive. Or try here.

The last thing I can think of is Yahoo or Verizon changed the settings without telling the customers. Or the servers could be down.

The somegirl post pointed to is many years old.  You should definitely use SSL and different ports. (pop-995, smtp-465).

 

Some people have recently had trouble because of the different password rules allowed on Verizon versus Yahoo.  Others because of recent server changes going on. 

 

Make sure you look at the official doc on setting up your settings for the email server.   https://help.yahoo.com/kb/verizon/SLN4724.html

 

If you are positive try contacting VERIZON.  They may tell you to go to Yahoo, but you need them to send you to someone with knowledge of the VERIZON/YAHOO email.

Also, make sure your password does not contain any special characters.

It appears that the issue is my password. Yahoo does not recognize my password and redirects me to Verizon to reset it. Resetting my Verizon password only changes my fios account and not my Verizon Yahoo account. I am stuck in a loop without any way to change my password or get Yahoo to accept the password I have always used.
