I have received the following email, which looks "phishy" to me. Can anyone confirm this is a scam? Here is the email: Dear Verizon Internet Customer, At Verizon, we continue our efforts to enhance your online experience as well as ensure ongoing security for our Internet customers. As a result, Verizon Online has modified the way email is handled when sent or received through an email application other than MyVerizon. If you only use MyVerizon to access your email account, no action is required and you may disregard this email. If you do, however, use other applications to access your Verizon email, such as Outlook Express®, you will need to modify your email settings to take advantage of enhanced security we now offer. In order to make these modifications, please visit http://verizon.com/emailsettings for information about the email settings you need to update. Additional information may also be available by going to our online forum at http://forums.verizon.com/. Thanks for being a valued Verizon Online customer and we encourage you to act now to ensure your email account has the proper settings on a going-forward basis. Sincerely, Verizon Online Ensure Verizon emails reach your inbox by adding email@example.com to your "safe" email list. Your email or Internet provider can provide instructions on how it works. This email has been sent from an auto-notification system that cannot accept incoming email. Sign In Forgot Your Password? Customer Service © 2011 Verizon
Not a scam. Verizon is pushing to get everyone to implement their SSL settings. There are a ton of threads about this already, which you can find by using the Search feature in the upper-right0hand corner of the forums.
