New incoming & outgoing email settings won't play nice with Spamihilator.
Spam filter Spamihilator automatically changes the new Verizon incoming & outgoing email settings in my email client Thunderbird. Thunderbird and Spamihilator render each other useless with these new settings in effect. I had to disable Spamihilator and manually change ALL the incoming and outgoing settings to get my email back up and running with the new settings. So everyone, check your spam filter. It could be the cause of the problem.
