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?
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.
