Do Verizon's POP3 and SMTP servers support SSL?
WardC

The Mail account setup wizard on Mac OS X 10.6.2 successfully added my new verizon.net email account in a couple of easy steps.  During the process, the wizard warned me that my password would be sent in the clear; I told it to continue.

After successfully sending and receiving test messages, I tried enabling SSL for the incoming and outgoing servers.  At that point, both sending and receiving failed.

I read the minimalist Support description about email app setup -- no mention of ports or SSL.

Is SSL possible on Verizon's servers?
