Changing POP Port Numbers

My wife and I each has a verizon email account.

I recently got an email telling me to change port numbers for incoming and outgoing emails.  She did not.

That leads to two questions:

1.  Why hasn't she received the email?  Are only some verizon users affected now?  Is this being rolled out?

2.  If I don't change the port numbers, will I eventually be unable to get email?  If so, when is the cut off?

Thanks.

The settings have worked for all Verizon email users (not Yahoo, etc) for a while.  They are just trying to stage the number of users that make the change at a time because a large number of users have had trouble making the changes correctly.  It is suspected that they may make the change mandatory sometime in the future.

I changed the ports on Thunderbird with no problem, but when I changed the on my iPad, I could no longer receive mail. Don't need the change for Aplle devices?
