Lower Modem Firewall Settings to Change Email Server Settings

after weeks of being unable to make the new settings work - then following what one of the other contributors wrote - I changed the firewall setting on my Verizon provided Modem to LOW -  now all is OK

medium and high settings will not allow the new settings to go through

suggest anyone with problems with new settings try same fix

Note:  check the model number of your modem and download the user manual from Verizon website for instructions on how to change firewall settings
