I got an email saying I have to change my settings. The only change I saw I had to make is to change my incoming server to 995 and the outgoing one to 465. It also said I need to make sure that SSL encryption is enabled. I could find nowhere in Outlook where I can enable SSL encryption. I found where you change the port settings, but when I changed them and tested the connection, I got an infinite hourglass and had to abort it.Without changing it (i.e., with my current settings of 110 and 587 respectively), the mail comes in OK. I thought Verizon was changing it. It looks like they haven't.
Also I see anothier thing. I can download my email to Outlook OK, but then I also see the email when I go to www.verizon.net. Why isn't my online email list clearing when I tell Outlook to download the email?
I am not willing to use their automatic method for fear it will wreck my Verizon email account or even harm my Earthlink account, which is what I usually use for email.
So do I need to change settings, and if so, how do I do it without pressing the automatic button?
You will probably have to make the change over to SSL at some point or you email will stop working.
