HI deawar,

Here are the ports. They don't work for all firewalls but work for most. 

HTTPS: 8443 (or 443)

IMAP: 993

Thanks,

Verizon Messages is an awesome app. Let's get yours working again. What type of device do you have? Is it on a coroporate account? Has it ever worked in the past?

I was specifically using the web messaging app because my office is in a

poor coverage area so my HTC One phone gets spotty cell and txt coverage.
