I am starting a new thread here because of the error indicated in the subject. I could not reply to this message: https://forums.verizon.com/t5/Verizon-net-Email/POP-Email-not-working-You-are-NOT-alone-09-2016/td-p...
I am using Outlook 2016. All of my settings are set up correctly. I have six Verizon email accounts that I have been sending/receiving emails with for months without a problem. This issue just started today(10/28/2016).
When I attempt to receive email for any of my Verizon email accounts, I get this message:
"Task 'Tony on Verizon - Receiving' reported error (0x800CCC1A) : 'Your server does not support the connection encryption type you have specified. Try changing the encryption method. Contact your mail server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP) for additional assistance.'"
All of my other non-Verizon emails accounts work fine.
I also use other email clients besides Outlook. The other email clients give me the same problem. I can receive emails for other non-Verizon email accounts, but I cannot receive emails from my Verizon email accounts. Again, it is all set up correctly because these email clients have been working for months. I did not change anything in those email clients.
I have tried using other computers using Outlook and the other email clients and get the same error for all of the Verizon email accounts.
I cannot PING pop.verizon.net. I can PING any other email server that I use without a problem. pop.verizon.net is the only one that does not work.
I can logon to my Verizon email in Internet Explorer and send/receive email fine, but that is because the Verizon email on the internet through a browser does not use POP.
I hope Verizon does something about this.
