Hi IwannaSeeMore,

 

I understand your frustration in this process. Please follow the steps below to set up your verizon.net email account. I have also included a link for you.

First, you want to select a POP account as the email type. Your incoming settings should be:

 

Username – your email address up to the @

Password – your email password

POP3 Server – incoming.yahoo.verizon.net Port – 110

Security type – none

 

The Droid will check the settings and should then bring you to the outgoing settings. If it says the user name and password are incorrect, double-check that they are correct and hit next again. Occasionally, there is a hiccup when you connect, but it clears if you try again.

 

Now, your outgoing settings should be:

SMTP Server – outgoing.yahoo.verizon.net

Port – 25

Security type – none

Check Require Sign-in Username Password Click next

 

 

I hope this information is helpful. Have a great day!
